PaperTrey Ink - The Sweet Life

Today, I have a series of cards I made one weekend using PaperTrey Ink "The Sweet Life".  This set is such fun!  

The roses are stamped in 3 layers from light to dark; Memento Angel Pink, PTI Autumn Rose and PTI Scarlet Jewel ink. The leaves are 2 layers, PTI Simply Chartreuse and PTI Ripe Avocado ink. 

I stamped several flower backgrounds and they all turned out slightly different.  The one above I added a stamped die cut frame and sentiment which is a set from My Favorite Things "Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings".   
The second card, I simply stamped "Happy Birthday" which is from the PaperTrey Ink set "Happy Hexagons".  Then, I added a few pearl accents.
The set PTI "The Sweet Life" has a coordinating die for the roses and the leaves.  For this card I wanted to use the dies.  
So, I created a couple different cards using the different rose sizes in the set.  The background and sentiment are TAC.  The ribbon is PTI Simply Chartreuse.  
The rose is stamped on PTI white cardstock.  The leaves are stamped on PTI Spring Moss cardstock. 
The last card I created is this years Mother's Day card and a slight variation of the previous birthday card.  The background and sentiment are TAC Beauty of a Woman.   
I used the cluster of 3 roses for this card and the rest of the leaves that I had left over.  I actually used everything I had die cut! These were my female cards for February, March and May.
