May is the month when many flowers finally go into full bloom after a long winter’s sleep. For the blog hop this month we want to see your favorite take on flowers. You can stamp backgrounds, create custom floral embellishments, showcase unique flower center additions (buttons, rhinestones, beads, etc…), flowers die-cut from different materials (like fabric, felt, vellum, etc…) or anything else you can dream up!

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.
