This is my second post for today. If you're looking for my Kraft Journal reveal, please scroll down. :)
Today I'm happy to share a card I made for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. This month we were challenged to come up with a project based on this photo - I decided to use the colors from the photo to make a cheery birthday card using the very first PTI stamp set I ever bought - Piece of Cake. I used the floral images to stamp a piece of Aqua Mist cardstock and then embossed them with white embossing powder so they'd pop a bit more and then added rhinestones to the centers of the largest flowers. I tied a white ribbon around the panel and then tied a little tag with a "Wish" sentiment to the bow using orange and white baker's twine. I finished the card with a die cut I found that matched perfectly.

I can't wait to see what lovely creations are out there today!

Supplies: Stamps - Piece of Cake (PTI), Cardstock - Aqua Mist, Terracotta Tile, Select White (PTI), Ink - Very Vanilla, Dusty Durango (SU!), Embossing Powder (SU!), Rhinestones (Recollections), Cupcake Die Cut (K&Co), Ribbon (Crafta), Baker's Twine (Divine Twine)
