Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop

Today, I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Our challenge was to use this beautiful photo as inspiration:


Isn't it pretty?
It actually inspired me to make a birthday card for Cameron's aunt.


I started by stamping the flowers outlines in versamark on watercolour paper
and then heat embossed them in white.
I stamped in the solid images in Tropical Teal, Limeade Ice, Raspberry Fizz and Summer Sunrise
and with a water brush, coloured over them and blurred the edges of them to give
a watercolour look.


I diecut a piece of raspberry fizz cardstock with my banner die from Get a Handle On It
and heat embossed my sentiment (from Tropics) in white.

Thanks for looking!
