Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

Today, I have a card to share for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
 

 This month's challenge was to use this photo as inspiration:


Isn't it beautiful? 
I was inspired by the background, as well as the flowers on the bottom cup.
Here's my card:


I stamped the images from Fresh Bouquet in Altenew Jet Black, Cotton Candy, Coral Berries,
Ruby Red, Mango Smoothie and Forest Glades, as well as Wplus9's Hayride onto
their coordinating diecuts.
I used some white acrylic paint and a paint brush to add some dry 
brushing to my aqua mist panel.



I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Daily Bread) 
onto my background in Altenew Jet Black.

Thanks for looking!
