PTI's May Blog Hop - Beautiful Bouquets!

I managed to play along this month with the PTI blog hop - yay! The theme is "Bouquet Builder", and Nichole provided some awesome color combos as inspiration for a floral themed card. I used (roughly) the second color combo, with a couple of minor switches, to end up with: Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, and for the leaves, Limeaid Ice and Simply Chartreuse.

I stamped a subtle background using Background Basics: Postmarks, and stamped the leaves from Happiness in Bloom directly over that. The flowers are also from Happiness in Bloom, but for something different, I layered the two larger ones with a Flower Fusion #4 as a center. For the smaller one, I just used a small circle die and stamped tone-on-tone from Sketched Shapes. A brad and buttons finish off the flower centers.



The sentiment is from Bountiful Banners. The banner and the flowers are all popped up on dimensional adhesive, and I custom colored some gems with a Copic marker to accent the banner.



Thanks for the great color combos Nichole, and thanks for stopping by!

Love how and where you used those colors. I need to begin to think more boldly, and you are showing the way. (Bold is harder to pull off if your sense of composition is as weak as mine.) I'm going to save your card so I can be inspired to 'go where no chicken-card-maker has gone before'.
