I'm playing along with this month's Papertrey Ink blog hop even though this month's inspiration photo is a little out of my comfort zone. The focal image of the photo is a super feminine floral bouquet and soft pink-orange-yellow color palette. I’m not a big floral person, so I kept things clean and simple for my card, opting for just a few blooms instead of a full-blown bouquet and using fewer colors.
The layout is very simple. I attached a strip of Summer Sunrise cardstock to the right side of the image panel and used my sewing machine to zig zag stitch along the end, then attached the panel to a Harvest Gold card base. I stamped one of the set’s sentiments in Orange Zest ink on a Summer Sunrise panel—I tried Summer Sunrise ink first, but it looked too light on the panel. I think this sentiment is perfect for a birthday card! A Summer Sunrise button, tied with some Summer Sunrise satin ribbon, is the only other embellishment on the card. I think I might try the design again in a Berry Sorbet/Sweet Blush color combination . . .
