Miss you

I actually get to participate in PTI's monthly blog hop this time around! WooHoo!

Here is the challenge picture.

Here is what I created.
Stamps are from the Botanical Silhouettes Anniversary set. I inked up the flower stamp in two separate colors to get the look. Studio G yellow chalk ink and Cantaloupe ink from Memento used.

I cut out a piece of white cardstock with the Mat stack 3 die, then ran it through the lattice embossing folder. To get the Aqua color I used ink from Colorbox direct to paper using a very light hand! I popped up the circle sentiment using foam tape and added a yellow pearl from Kaisercraft for the center fo the flower.

Yellow cardstock was rescued from my stash of scraps. The ticket corner punch was used on the corners and then I added tiny white pearls as a point of interest. Doily was added as an after thought and I love what it does for the over layout of the card. White satin was used to tie the bow using the Bow Easy.

What do you think?
