Paper Trey Ink's February 2014 Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday everyone. It is a happy day around here because I took a personal day off work today. It is to bring my daughter to the doctor's but I will take it any way I can. A day off is a day off!

I am playing along with Paper Trey Ink's February 2014 Blog Hop. It was to make a card inspired by the images below and to think "spring."

I chose to concentrate on the blue/green and the yellows from the image. I made a sympathy card for someone who lost their husband recently. It might not seem to be a "springy" subject but I thought the rose images and the touch of yellow made it spring enough in design so what is was for doesn't really matter.

I was able to play with some new stamps I bought last month. I used Paper Trey's "Four Square" stamp set for the frame. I stamped it in Hawaiian Shores ink onto Aqua Mist card stock. The stamped sentiment is from "Words of Comfort."

The stamped roses are from "The Sweet Life" and the "Rosie Posie" stamp sets. I stamped them first with Aqua Mist and then Hawaiian Shores ink. The leaves were done with Simply Chartreuse over Spring Moss.

I created the rose background paper by stamping with the medium rose from "The Sweet Life" set onto Aqua Mist card stock.

I really like how this card came out. Does it scream SPRING? Perhaps not but it makes me want my flowers to bloom outside.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!!
