Time for the monthly Papertrey Ink blog hop! Here's my card inspired by the photo. Obviously, I was drawn to the dark gray, copper embossing, and bright pink.
I cut a piece of Smokey Shadow cardstock, embossed one of the borders from Background Basics: Retro using Not So Tarnished Copper powder, and glued it to a Hibiscus Burst card base. I cut the Framed Love die from Hibiscus Burst cardstock twice, layering them for dimension. For extra sparkle, I used a glue pen to add Sugar Cube glitter to the word portion.
Using the Beautiful Blooms II #3 dies by Papertrey Ink, I cut flowers from both Hibiscus Burst and Smokey Shadow cardstock. I stamped each one with polka dots using Bitty Background Blocks and white pigment ink. I created flowers by layering the two colors together and putting a rhinestone brad in the center. I chose to use a coppery metal brad to echo the embossing.
I added the flowers to my card in opposite corners of the love frame. It's quite whimsical with graphic elements. I really like the combination! Check out other cards for the blog hop here.
