Papertrey Ink and Memory Box Thinking of you card



Hello everyone,

I've had a hard time creating a card since the refurb of my craft room because I haven't wanted to mess it it up lol! However, I bit the bullet for the PTI bloghop

This time we were given this inspiration picture 

August Blog Hop

and I took inspiration from the muted orange colours and navy blue to come up with this card



I like to have at least one card in my stash that I can send out for a number of situations and this one will cover lots of occasions because I can personalise it by the sentiment I put on the inside.

I started by blending several orange inks on a panel of card and then stamped the silhouette flowers from the Life stamp set and added the sentiment from Iconic Images.


I die cut the panel, matted it with some navy card and then added it to an A2 card on foam tape over another die cut made with a Memory Box Ribbon die. I added some WOS glitter to the flowers but this isn't showing in the photo for some reason.

I'm dying to see how everyone else interpreted this picture!


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.


I'd like to play with





Hugs
