PTI June 2011 Blog Hop

Even though I've never participated in a blog hop I thought I'd try the PTI June Blog Hop challenge.

I did find it challenging, but then that's the idea, right? I had many thoughts and ideas before I finally settled on this one. Still not sure, but then I always seem to doubt myself and decided to go with it.

For the design I decided to use one of the June release stamp sets Gracious Vases which I adore by Maile Belles at PTI.

I first sponged each of the colors onto white card stock then stamped the make-believe shelf using the bottom of one of the images from Mat Stack 3. I then stamped an assortment of the vases, some overlapping to mimic the use of four items in the inspiration photo. I really like the simplicity of the card as is so I just matted it onto a coordinating card stock and adhered it to the card base. I just couldn't leave well enough alone and had to add three clear dots in the upper left hand corner, just cause it looked lonely! And that's it from me, thanks for the opportunity to join in the fun.

Nancy I love your card interpretation! It reminds me of a southwest sunset for some reason......but that's a good thing. Your vases look fantastic on your make-believe shelf and I LOVE your 3 clear dots! Hugs.
