Hi all! Today is the PTI Blog Hop, which is focused this month on bright colors on a black background. I’ve made two offerings following these guidelines, the first of which focused on the stamp set Happy Hydrangea. I got some pretty blue embossing powder at Hobby Lobby today, and I thought it was the perfect shade of blue for a hydrangea. (Hydrangeas are also my favorite flowers!) I also wanted to enter this card in the MIM for this week, so I’m killing two birds with one stone.
I will be back momentarily with another (prettier) card!
Card stock: PTI white, Spring Rain, True Black
Stamps: Happy Hydrangea, Think Big Favorites
Miscellaneous: Zing! embossing powder, Versamark watermark ink, Liquid Pearls, clear rhinestones
This is gorgeous! 🙂

I can barely put into words how much I love this card!! The blue embossed hydrangea is amazing…I think my eye was drawn to this because they are my fave flower. LOVE it embossed this way and tied with a ribbon 🙂 An awesome layout, TOO! WOW!

Love all the different colors you brought in in your embossing… love the color of the hydrangeas… everything seems more vibrant on black.. a call to the 70's and here it comes again with black being back in fashion 😉 Thanks for sharing 🙂 Kathi
