PTI January Blog hop

Hi Friends, I get to play with the January Blog Hop.  I loved the photo inspiration!
Blog Hop Inspiration 
I chose the bottom cookie with the black and white and then I cut out Vintage Linens stamp set for the flowers and leaves and inked them up with some hibiscus burst, raspberry fizz, pure poppy and some green parakeet with a bit of new leaf.
My stripes were made with SSS Wide Stripes Background stamp and my sentiment is from Keep it Simple: Thinking of You.

  8. Great minds think alike, Colleen. Your card is lovely with the various colors of flowers. I was forced to use that set for my card since it's the only flower stamp of PTI's I have, which is hard to believe. I also did a stripe background but cheated with DSP.
