I love hydrangeas, as does my mother. Mother's day is next Sunday here in the US, so it's time to make mom a card. I have had this Happy Hydrangea set from PTI for a long time, and I have never shown it any ink. In an effort of trying to use some of my stash that has been neglected, I checked out this week's Shopping Our Stash Challenge. This week's challenge is "Opposite Day" - to make something that's opposite your usual style. So I pulled out my Happy Hydrangea set, and some PTI inks and went to work. I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch #184 for the layout of my card. I have been leaning toward Clean & Simple for quite a while - I don't use a lot of layers. This card has 5 layers, and through it is still rather CAS, that number of layers are not my usual.
After stamping the hydrangea panel, I added a little Platinum Stickles to give my hydrangeas a little sparkle. Not sure that I love the different sizes of stitching on the rectangle vs the fishtail die cuts, but I decided to leave them as is and call it a card.
The Pink Elephant Challenge this week is Anything Goes, so I am posting this card to their gallery as well.
Thanks so much for stopping in today. Have a great one!
