Iconic Bouquet

Time for the monthly Papertrey Ink blog hop!  This time the challenge was to use navy and shades of pink.  I loved the swiss-dotted vase and luscious floral bouquet in the inspiration picture, and used those elements to create my card.

I used an older PTI set called Iconic Images and stamped the pitcher in Enchanted Evening, hand-cutting around the image.  I stamped the flowers separately in Hibiscus Burst and Simply Chartreuse inks.  After cutting out the flowers, I glued them behind the pitcher.

The swiss-dot pattern comes from one of my favorite Cuttlebug embossing folders called, appropriately, Swiss Dots.  lol  I adhered that panel to an Enchanted Evening card base.  I stamped my sentiment on a strip of Hibiscus Burst cardstock and added the pitcher, raising it up slightly with a bit of cardstock.  Sweet and simple!

Stamps:  Iconic Images (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento); Enchanted Evening, Hibiscus Burst, Simply Chartreuse (Papertrey Ink)
Paper:  White, Hibiscus Burst, Enchanted Evening (Papertrey Ink)
Misc:  0, C1, C3 (Copic); Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug)
