PTI March 2016 Blog Hop




All the inspiration photos for this month's PTI Blog Hop centered around embroidering, so I decided to pull out Embroidered Blooms for my card.


I pulled out some colors that I don't normally use together, but seemed to work on this card--Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides, Berry Sorbet and Bright Buttercup.  I fussy cut the flowers, because I wanted them to be small.


I added texture with the Aida impression plate.

I'm off to see what everyone else made.  Enjoy the hop.


Thanks for Visiting

  3. I always get so envious when someone uses PTI stamps and impression plates as their shipping prices to the UK are prohibitively expensive and when you combine that and the duty and tax payable, well, it works out to nearly 3x the price! Designs like this beauty make me pine even more!! LOVE it Joyce! Have a very lovely Easter weekend! Hazel xx
