PTI Inspiration challenge

Hi everyone! It's the 25th of the month, which means that it's time for another PTI blog hop. Here is the inspiration photo.

I decided to follow the color palette.

Stamps are from Gracious Vases. The center vase is paper pieced and popped up using foam tape. The other two are colored with Copic markers. All paper except for the striped is from PTI.

As I was making this card, the big brown truck delivered my PTI order and I got to add the Half and Half die. After taping the two die cuts together I popped up the main image. Then I had to take it apart because the tape showed up on the bottom. =)

The brown and white striped paper on the base of the card is a Christopher and Banks paper bag that I cut up. Isn't it funny how the things we save, we do indeed use one day? Well maybe. Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think!
