Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Hi Blog Friends!
I know, SURPRISE!!!! Two posts in one day!!! WOW!!!!! BUT, if you read my first post from today, you would know I have a "new" company of stamps that I'm in love with! And that it's
 Paper Trey Ink!
 Here is the challenge for today:
Using the colors PTI gives...This is the color palette I chose from the selection given & you are to  use FLOWERS!
You can find more information about this Challenge here:
Aren't these colors just GORGEOUS???? Makes me think of SPRING!  Well, guess what? I also have a Wedding Card to make & thought this challenge would serve me well in getting me going! So, here I am!!!!! I also forgot I got a FLORAL stamp from PTI!!!! DAH!!!!!! So, I pulled it out! It's called Lace Bouquet! What a GORGEOUS STAMP!!!! It makes me think of Edwardian or Elizabethan Embroidery! AND these colors of green are usually used with this type of embroidery!

 Here's my card:
This is a close-up of the floral design & what I did with it---
I used Versa Fine Olympia Green to stamp the image, & SU- Barely Banana & River Rock markers. The River Rock is what I used to go around the images & it gives a little shadow. I also used Tim Holtz- Antique Linen to tone down the white card base and Making Memories Antique Ribbon.
This is the Main Image for my card! Isn't this just SOOO SWEET! This image is from the Love & Marriage set. OH MY! This set is FILLED with images to use! And more than one main image! It is THE IMAGE that sold me on this set!
Well, I think this card came out "old & vintagey" which I LOVE!!!!!! I STILL have time to play before I send off my Wedding card  & gift but, what do you think???? Let me know, I'd LOVE to hear!
Hope to see you over at PTI!
