Well hello again! Yes, it’s that time of the month – Papertrey Ink Blog Hop time and this month it’s all about flowers!
Now before I show you my card let me explain where I’m coming from! I’ve really been enjoying Tina Fussell’s (aka Travelling Mama) exploration of white on white. I know that flowers are traditionally bright and colourful but I wanted to use flowers in a different setting. Then I saw this photo on Pinterest and it got me thinking.
I liked the idea of using white on white but creating interest with layers and different textures. So after all this rambling this is what I came up with.
A totally white card! I know! I’m such a colour junky I wanted to add in a splash of lime or similar but I resisted and you know what, I quite like the result! I clear embossed the main panel with a woodgrain stamp to create a bit of texture. You can see it better in this photo.
I added a mat to the main layer and used dimensionals to adhere it to the card. Then added layers of die cuts, gems and a button. A simple sentiment stamped in grey finished it off.
And because I used Pinterest inspiration I’m also going to pop this card over to Laurie’s challenge too.
I hope you have a great time exploring the other blog hop participants.

How cool do you feel having your beautiful card as part of the PTI Blog Hop inspiration board this month? :-) I love this card, Debby, it’s so elegant and beautiful!
Your cards are always so beautiful and such an inspiration! I know this is an older post but I have a question – who is the stem/leaves die by? I had a quick look at the PTI beautiful blooms sets but don’t see it there. Though of course it’s possible it’s been discontinued…
Looking at those leaves Claire, I think they are a Sizzix sizzles set. Hang on and I will try and find a link if they are still doing them :)
