Papertrey Ink February 2017 Blog Hop


The above photo is the inspiration piece for this month's Blog Hop by Papertrey Ink.  What a beautiful photo full of colors I hardly ever use, much less all together, but it is such a striking combo. Way to go Nichole for finding this picture.  

So I am last minute making my card.  I like all my elements, except I just can't seem to stamp sentiments straight anymore, and embossing things without flaws has escaped me as well.  Sigh.. Anyway, here is my entry.   I used Stampin' UP!'s Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss papers.  I used Raspberry Fizz, Saffron Spice, and Smokey Shadow papers from PTI.  I used gold and clear embossing powders for my stamping.
