Papertrey May Blog Hop

This month's blog hop challenge for Papertrey involves doing something special with flowers...I will admit that there's nothing exceptional about the flowers on my card...but I was incredibly limited on time...I had to whip up this card in about 20 minutes! (that's super fast for me...I'm usually a slow card maker)

Anyway, I was going for fast, clean & simple because I really wanted to participate in the blog hop this month and this was all I had time to come up with (going out to dinner tonight with my hubby for our 9th anniversary!! :)

I also did something that was a first for me...using Papertrey felt to make a flower, with my brand new Sizzix 3D flower die. Fun stuff. Well, I've got to run and get dressed up for an evening at a fancy restaurant overlooking Seattle and some great food!

Here's my simple, quickie card:


Supply list:

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Patterned Paper:
Stamp Set(s): Sending You (PTI)
Ink/Colorants: Real Red (SU); Sorbet, Garden Green, Black (CTMH)
Embellishments: Melon Berry felt (PTI); Brown pearls (Basic Grey)
Tools: 3D Flower die (Sizzix)
