papertrey march blog hop

Papertrey's blog hop inspiration this month is yellow and aqua.  It's not a natural combo for me, but I remembered I had some great A Muse paper that I paired with a bunch of Papertrey Ink die cuts to create this fun and elegant (for me) mother's day card.  After making my first rosette, I made this one using the small dahlia die and popped in a rhinestone that I colored with a copic marker.

 

proof that the rhinestone is yellow

stamp: Papertrey fillable frame, text background, & "Happy Mother's Day"
ink: Impress lemon yellow & pale aqua
other: Papertrey die cuts, rhinestone, Copic {Y06}
