PTI May Blog Hop!

Hooray!  It's PTI Blog Hop Time!  I loved this month's inspiration photo!!  These colors are so trendy right now and I was eager to work with them.  Here is the photo:


Isn't it gorgeous?  I went for a pretty literal look for my card, trying to used texture and color for each layer.  I used Betsy's MIM tutorial to help me pick my patterns.  The center of the cut felt flower is a bunch of French Knots.



Here's a close up of the knots... :)


Thanks for stopping by ~ have fun hopping...!
