Papertrey Ink's May Blog Hop!

Hello Friends!
I hope you are all enjoying your Memorial Day weekend.
I am not doing anything much so I've decided to get crafty today. I am playing along
with Papertrey Ink's May Blog Hop today and thought I would share my card. The challenge was to pick a color combination given on Nichole's Blog and to use florals with those colors, although not all colors had to be used.

I chose this color combination:
I decided to create my own background paper. I started off with PTI's Vintage Cream CS and inked up some flowers from the "From me to you" stamp set by Close to my Heart and also some flowers from a small Studio 112 stamp set that I had. I used the colors Pure Poppy, Canyon Clay, Orange Zest, Autumn Rose and New Leaf to create the colorful blooms background. I then took some Pure Poppy CS cut at 4 1/4" by 5 3/4" and added a cute border trim at the bottom using one of my MS punches before adhering my floral layer to the front of it.
My sentiment, "Because You Matter to me" is a stamp that I had in my stash that I got from Michael's dollar bins long time ago. I inked that up with some ranger archival ink. To finish off the card, I added some razzleberry sequins and some rock candy stickles to the middles of some of the smaller flowers. Below is a picture of the inside which uses a sentiment from Cloud 9 Designs, "Simple Thoughts-Memories" stamp set.

Well that is my card for you today. I hope you have a great rest of the weekend and if you get time, go link up your project. You have until 11:30pm EST. tonight to link up for your chance to win $25 to shop at PTI! Have a great evening!!!
