PTI August 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

The Challenge:

PTI August 2015 Blog Hop

Here's the inspiration photo



I picked up the colors with my cross-stitching floss


and used this die cut and stamp that I rarely used.


the background was masked and colored with the following die



next, the flowers and leaves are from this PTI mini kit



finally is the sentiment....

This is a creative take on the challenge. Thank you for showing the products you used to make your card. I have to remember to use that journal card as a stencil; those holes are a great size.
