PTI Blog Hop – July 2017

Today is PTI’s Blog Hop:

I was inspired by the colors, the soft leaves, and the gold wax seal.

Here is my card:

Graceful & Gold | by karen @ carefree creations

I love the blue/grey color in the background of the inspiration so I started with a Ocean card base. The soft leaves made me want to do a blended leaf background, but I couldn’t find supplies to bring my vision about. Taking a second look at the inspiration, I saw the pale pink flowers and decided to go that route. My final inspired touch, the gold embossed sentiment, was taken from the gold wax seal.

In putting the card together, I wanted to do a bit more accents and saw, what I think is, a pearl ring in the inspiration, so I added some pearls.

Here is a close-up of the embossing:

Thanks for taking a peek!
