Hello! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend. I haven’t taken part in Papertrey Ink‘s blog hops in ages and today I was finally able to remedy that. The inspiration boards above certainly got me in a creative mood. Initially I tried to recreate the lovely blue flower in felt and although I know it’s possible, my attempts weren’t up to scratch. I did want to include a flower on my card though so went through my stamp sets and settled on one from Pretty Peonies. I went with a washed out blue and rich yellow colour scheme which reminds me of late summer and the first chills to the air as autumn approaches. Here’s my card:
I coloured the flower from Pretty Peonies with distress markers and added the sentiment from Botanical Silhouettes to a fillable frame #7 die cut. The patterned paper strip reminded me of the herringbone fabrics and I backed the sentiment panel with jute to give an extra hint to the textiles in the inspiration photos.
That’s me for today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
Ahhhh, that random jute is the BEST behind your sentiment! Love your card, Debby!
SO beautiful… I love the way you coloured your peonie, and the little bit of fibre poking out from behind your label is just the right touch. Everything is perfectly executed – I love this!!
Fabulous card–wonderfully colored flower & great design!
Stunning- perfect use of textile.
Oh my this is just beautiful. You should frame it.
Love the rustic touch you have given that flower! It’s all the little details on this card that I love most… The burlap, the hint of glitter…

Fantastic card! I love the burlap strings.
