One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

PTI April Blog Hop

You can go HERE to play along with this months Blog Hop!

I don't know if you can tell or not, but I used the striped cover plate and turned it to get the woven look, which reminded me of the placemat.  I chose a Beautiful Brushstrokes rose and colored it with sweet blush, hibiscus burst and raspberry fizz.  The leaves are spring moss and simply chartreuse.  My sentiment from Happy Hydrangea was embossed on vellum.  the card base is soft stone.

Blog hop inspiration


  1. Very beautiful!! And I love the woven texture on the background! Great idea!

  2. This is beautiful! How clever to create the woven background.

  3. oh i wish i could see the background better - but no matter - such a lovely card - love that big bloom in perfect colors

  4. I enlarged your photo to see the background better, and it is just lovely Colleen! I think I'm going to have to try that out for myself...very cool! Your flower and embossed sentiment are just perfect for this card too...very, very lovely!! :0)

  5. Oh my, this is so pretty. I love the navy color with that stunning pink. Gorgeous! It is hard to see the cover plate but if you make it bigger you can see it.

  6. Great design using the striped cp to look woven like the place mat, Colleen. Your choice of that Beautiful Brushstrokes rose is perfect too
