{May PTI Blog Hop}


   Hello friends! Oh my gosh I am sorry that it has been so quiet in my blog this week.  I have been busy crafting on a few really fun projects that I'll get to share in the next few months. Today is my first "free" day in awhile. I am happy to be playing along with this months PTI Blog Hop!!

 Here is the inspiration photo:




  SO pretty! To create my card I used the PTI set "Botanical Silhouettes". The background stamps are from Glitz Design. I have several PTI back ground sets but just couldn't find one that matched the look I was going for with my card. I used Grass pigment ink from A Muse Studio, and Provincial Gray by Fresh Ink.  I hope you like my card and thank you for visiting my blog today!

I love this - I was struggling with creating a card that used the photo colors, but didn't feel so "heavy" - you nailed it! It's so breezy and beautiful.
