PTI - JULY BLOG HOP

PTI has supplied this gorgeous inspiration photo for the  July Blog Hop.  

 
The challenge is all about pairing up these beautiful citrusy, summer colors with some pretty floral images to create the perfect project that embodies everything summer.  

My Card - click on the photo for more details

PTI products used:   
White Stamper's Select cardstock and Banner Borders dies

I stamped my daisy image (Inkadinkado) in embossing ink then heated with white powder onto colored cardstock.  Then I fussy cut each flower. The leaves are felt (from Martha Stewart) and maybe a bit too dark green for all these pastely colors (?)  The Banner Border die is cut from a glittery card stock pack from DCWV.  The satin ribbon is from Michael's.


Didn't add a sentiment, cause I am not sure who/what this one is destined for yet.  I really like how the pastel colors look together and luckily stamped/embossed a couple of the flowers to make another similar card for another time *     ;o) 

* those of you who know me, realize I never do this...have to re-invent the wheel with each and every card I make ~ sooooo annoying am I.

I'm off to check out all of the "real talent" now ...
