PTI Blog Hop: Violet wishes...

Hiya!

When I saw this month's theme for the PTI blog hop I knew I had to play along:

May is the month when many flowers finally go into full bloom after a long winter's sleep. For the blog
hop this month we want to see your favorite take on flowers. You can stamp backgrounds, create
custom floral embellishments, showcase unique flower center additions (buttons, rhinestones, beads,
etc...), flowers die-cut from different materials (like fabric, felt, vellum, etc...) or anything else you can
dream up! We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing creations!

I used my Year of Flowers: Violets set and got colouring to create this:


I used the gorgeous colours from the CR84FN challenge this week as my starting point:


The flowers and leaves were coloured with copics and cut out - I added some chocolate pearls to the centres of the flowers for a bit of extra dimension. The parisian doily in the background was die-cut from cream card. The sentiment ticket was created using the Just the Ticket set and coordinating die plus a little butterfly from Butterfly Dreams. I added some lace trim and Concord Crush ribbon and button to finish.

Thanks for stopping by!
