PTI Blog Hop - July!

Thanks for stopping by!  I had such big plans to make numerous projects for this blog hop, and then last night it dawned on me that the hop was TODAY!  I don't know about you, but Summer has been FLYING by!  

Let's get down to business though, shall we??

This month's challenge was to use one of these wonderful color palettes posted on Nichole's blog.  I chose this combo:


I have to admit, Melon Berry is not a color I use often.  Not sure why, but it's just not a color I run to, unlike Hawaiian Shores, or Raspberry Fizz (two of my all time faves!) so this really was a challenge for me.  Unfortunately I needed a Sympathy card, I really should make a few to have on hand, but I guess since it's my least favorite card to have to make, I don't want to make them when I'm playing around for fun, KWIM??

Anyway, here's my card:

I used The Sweet Life, the small butterfly from Natural Beauties, and the sentiment is from Think Big Favorites #3.  The sentiment was stamped once in Melon Berry, and then I offset slightly, and stamped it again, and embossed it in gold.  I used Summer Sunrise and Harvest gold for the roses, and New Leaf (stamped off once for the base image) for the leaves.  Can't wait to hop around and check out all of the entries!  Have a great day!
