Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge

**This is my 2nd post for today! To see my card with PTI's Mehndi Medallion set, click here!**


Hi everyone!! I totally forgot that this was PTI blog hop day so I am here with a card I quickly whipped up this morning!  Our challenge this month was to make a card using this gorgeous photo for inspiration:


And here is what I quickly came up with:


I took  my inspiration from the colors, the flowers and from the suitcase lining.  There were so many beautiful elements in this photo it was hard to narrow down what to focus on!  I used Damask Designs to first stamp a background on Rustic Cream cardstock using Haystack Palette ink.  The flowers were stamped with a mixture of Sweet Blush & Hibiscus Burst inks and then I used a yellow copic to give the center just a hint of yellow coloring.


The frame at the top was created by cutting off the top of the Tag Sale #3 die cut and attaching it to the card front with pop dots. 


There will be LOTS of cards to see today with TONS of inspiration!! To add yours or to see all the participants, visit Nichole's blog here!!  Thank you so much for stopping by!! I am off now to view the other cards in the hop!!
