PTI Blog Hop- v. 1.2

Hi again! This card only works with the Blog Hop, but it is definitely my favorite card from today's activities. Seriously, I don't think you could make an ugly card with The Sweet Life even if you were TRYING. Those roses are just stunning, and done in my new favorite color combo: Berry Sorbet, Raspberry Fizz, and Pure Poppy. (Thanks to Dawn McVey for that lovely color combo!) It is such a lovely, vibrant combination... And mounting them on a black background really makes them pop even more! I love the mint and coral combo that is so chic right now, so I used some MFT Spearmint CS for some little flourishes to accent the roses. They don't need much... Some minty green Liquid Pearls and an embossed sentiment from Over Under Easy finished it off.

Card stock: PTI True Black, MFT Spearmint
Ink: Berry Sorbet, Raspberry Fizz, Pure Poppy, New Leaf (all PTI), Versamark, Memento New Sprout
Stamps: The Sweet Life, Over Under Easy
Dies: The Sweet Life, MFT Flourish die-namics
Mint Green Liquid Pearls

I am definitely going to have to remember this "black background" concept... It is really lovely, and definitely something outside of my usual pastel/shabby chic routine. Thanks for stopping by, again! :)


  1. Beautiful card! Your stamped roses looks amazing!

  2. A beautiful card.... love the flourish, minty green pearls and the perfect roses!

  3. You're right. Those three reds are beautiful together, and they do make spectacular roses. You did a wonderful job of stamping them too. (I need a little more practice. They are not exactly a no-brainer.) The mint green is great with those warm colors, and I would not have thought to put them together. This is a really lush card. No wonder you love it. (Don't you just get tickled with the way some cards work out?) Have fun hopping around today, and thank you for sharing.

  4. Stunning color combination - love the red sentiment!
