Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop

I just had to participate in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop this month because I couldn't resist the challenge:


I've been so into "white background" cards lately, that I thought it would be a fun challenge to switch it up.  And so, this is what I came up with:
I am so disappointed in how washed out the photo turned out.  It looks so much prettier in real life.  I haven't used my Delightful Dahlia stamp set in such a long time, and I enjoyed playing with it again.  I thought about coloring in the flowers, but I liked them as is.  Really, it does look so much prettier in real life!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!


Details:
Cardstock: PTI True Black, Stampers White
Stamps: PTI Delightful Dahlia, Scattered Showers
Ink: PTI Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, New Leaf, Versamark
Other: PTI Delightful Dahlia dies, Martha Stewart Dove embossing powder, Kaiser pearls
Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

  9. Linda this is so lovely! I love the pearl centers you added to the flowers and the fussy cutting to add them to the bottom corner just right! I had a hard time photographing my black cards too! I need to take a photography class! LOL!!!

  14. This would be a perfect CAS card. The white embossed sentiment and the white floral image create a very sophisticated look. I could certainly be adapted for a bridal shower or birthday card with a sentiment change.
