Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop





It's time for the Papertrey Ink blog hop again and this month the challenge is to -

"pick your favorite floral set at the moment, pull out the ink colors for one of the gorgeous inspiration pieces above and create!"

I wanted to make a card for a friend who loves Earth colours, so I chose this inspiration bouquet.....


 
 




Rosie Posie has to be my favourite floral set and at last I got chance to play with Step 2 which has not seen ink since it came out a few months back.  So much easier than getting a pile of Copics on the desk and hoping I get it right! 
 
I managed to get all the colours in with a little addition of spring moss for the leaves.


 
 
Thanks for stopping by today - apologies if you drop in and haven't seen much from me for a while.  The company I worked for went into administration recently and many of us lost our jobs (how careless of us!).  My thanks to all my friends who have been so supportive and sending hugs - it has really helped.
