Thank You for Your Kindness - PTI Blog Hop

 
It's the 25th of the month and you know what that means...time for the PTI Blog Hop.  This month's inspiration photo had so many wonderful possibilities.  It is gorgeous.  I love the pops of color along with the neutrals.
In honor of my CAS week on my blog, I made another very CAS card for this month's challenge.  The top of the suitcase reminded me so much of SU Sahara Sand...and I loved the damask type image so I recreated this on the bottom.  The floral images are from Botanical Images using SU Red Riding Hood and stamping off on the second image.  Added a few gems to balance it all out. Hope you have fun blog hopping today!

A super duper pretty take on that pic, Lynn! I love the twine treatment and the fact that you've photographed this beauty outdoors just like the original pic!

I love how you've stamped your own background paper with Iconic Images! So subtle in that color. Love the added dimension with that twine!

carol (krillsister) said...

Lovely card. I like how you raised the image of the flower by stamping the bottom of the card with the image from iconic images.
The placement of the flowers there is really different, a nice change. It works.
