PTI Blog Hop / Thinking of you

Hello.  How is your week going so far?  I have been so busy but have managed to squeeze some mandatory stamping in somehow.  I saw that the PTI Blog Hop this month is flowers.  I can tell you that I am in love with my new Anniversary set and had to use it again.  This time with a different image in the set.


When I see this set I think of fun summery colors.  So I pulled out my My Minds Eye and October Afternoon papers and went to town.  I kept this pretty simple with just a little ruffled seam binding that I stitched to the bottom and a few buttons on the side.  I need to put this one in the mail so it needs to be pretty flat.  I also threw in a blue button just for the heck of it.  I know there is no other blue in the card, but it just worked better than any other colors I put there.  What do ya think?



Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Rustic Cream, Kraft
PP: MME, OA
Stamps: PTI/ Botanical Silhouettes
Inks: Memento/ Cantelopue, Rich Cocoa and  Versa Magic/ Tea Leaves
Buttons: PTI
Twine: PTI

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
Heather

Heather, your card is simply perfect! Love the springy colors...I guess it is almost summer so maybe I should change that to summery colors...it is just that we never had a spring here in washington state:)

You are using that stamp set aren't you. Your card is so soft and pretty. I love the blue button. The flowers look like all the wonderful yellow flowers popping up in my grass :)

This card is just the cutest! I think the blue button is perfect. It introduces a new and single color but still in the same tone. Love it!!

Hi Heather!

Great card! That pretty paper really boosts up the flower stamp, gives it some dimension or so! Pretty!!! Good to hear you are okay there! Hope the forces of nature will now leave you alone! ;-) It was great to hear from you and great to see you are enjoying these anniversary stamps so much!!

Wow, it's perfect. I love the colours, and I think the blue button is key to pulling it all together and not making it too matchy-matchy.

A great card for the hop! I love the blue button on it. It reminds me of a little peek of blue sky with the flowers.
