Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Hello!

I almost forgot to post my entry to the May Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! I think I've made it just in time. The card was made, I just forgot the post, silly me!

This was our inspiration:
I had a few more ideas than the one I created, but my limited crafting time in the past two weeks has seriously impacted my ability to make more than one card here and there (sob!). (This is where you chime in and say, "There, there, you poor dear." LOL!)

This is what I came up with.
I made another card the same, in a different colour, in fact, I might show it to you as well. When I made the green one, I wanted to add some bling, but its purpose was to be a bit more unisex, and the older men this was aimed at are not blingy types. So I made a second so I could add the bling! :-)
Both cards are constructed the same. I stamped PTI Rosie Posie, then masked and stamped the Hero Arts Zig Zag and added the Hero Arts Sentiment. I popped up the front panel to add some dimension to what is essentially a one-layer design. Card is PTI Basic White.

Thanks for stopping by!

Both of your cards are beautiful Michelle, I love how the flower just pops off the page. Great masking.

The stunning colour of the flower really pops it off the page Michelle! You would think at first glance it is layered. Very clever ♥

Don't you just hate when life gets in the way of crafting? LOL! Glad you managed to post these on time. I love how different they feel with the change of flower colours and the addition of the gems.
