Time for the March Papertrey Ink blog hop! We were given a lovely inspiration photo of floral prints designed by Victoria Johnson. I created my card background in that style using the Garden of Life, Mini Blooms, and Christmas Poinsettia stamp sets by Papertrey Ink.

It's interesting how different colors look printed versus my computer screen. The gray looked like lavender, for example, so I used Winter Wisteria. Shrug. I am NOT re-doing it! lol
I used lots of different flowers and colors to mimic the pattern. I also hand-cut every single one. I'm a glutton for punishment apparently. :) Actually, it's very therapeutic. I had a podcast playing and the time passed quickly. I love the zen of creating.
I glued all the flowers to a Dark Indigo card base and trimmed off the edges. I didn't want to cover up my pretty background, so I stamped my sentiment from Happy Hydrangeas on vellum cut with a Keep It Simple Frames die. I used Dark Indigo ink to match the card. If I had a Misti, I would have stamped it again to make it darker. It's a bit lighter than I hoped. Still, I really like how this card turned out!
