Papertrey Ink June 2015 Blog Hop

 Blog-hop-logo
It's time for another Blog Hop Challenge at Papertrey Ink. 
The simplicity of these gray stripes paired with cream and 
orange flowers just speaks volumes in regards to card inspiration. 
Experiment with stamped flowers or die-cut florals.  Add stripes 
using delicate Sheer Basics striped vellum overlays or cover plates.
Blog hop inspiration

I used these colour and design details to create my card:

Leaves: 
Simply Chartreuse card stock; 
MFT Leafy Flourish die

Thanks for visiting today.
