PaperTrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Blog-hop-logo

Happy Saturday!

I decided to participate in the PaperTrey Ink May Blog Hop.  I got my order Thursday night, Yay!, so I thought - hmm maybe I should make something.  Especially when I found a sketch challenge that was a perfect fit with this hop. 

This month is a color challenge, so I chose the Pink Bouquet - Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise and Ripe Avocado color scheme.  LOVE these bright fun colors!
2-Shades-of-Pink-Bouquet
Here is my card.  I used the new May release set called "Ruby Rose".  There is also a coordinating die.
The base card is Raspberry Fizz cardstock.  I added a strip of Ripe Avocado and Summer Sunrise cardstock, which I ran thru the sewing machine.
The flowers are stamped on PTI white cardstock with Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest and Summer Sunrise ink.  I ended cutting the flowers out by hand because I could not find a wire clipper to cut the die apart.  I did use the leaf dies and stamped them with Ripe Avocado ink.

I used a sketch today from Freshly Made Sketches #87.  Thought it was really perfect for this new set.  Love when that happens.

  19. Gorgeous, gorgeous card, and excellent use of the colors! So nice for the Fusion challenge, too! I wanted to combine the challenges, too, but...on limited time, I had to simplify and stick with one. (I was getting a little overwhelmed with options!;) THis really turned out beautiful!
