Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

I used my new Daydreamer stamp set from Papertrey Ink to create this floral thank you card. The partial postage stamp came about as an accident. I was trying to stamp two flowers in a scalloped rectangle but I didn't like how it looked so used my paper trimmer to cut one out and thus ended up with what you see here. It was a happy accident I suppose. =)  I first inked the flowers with Pink, and then dabbed the stamp edges on the Razzberry pink to get the two-toned look.

PTI cardstock in Spring Moss& Stampers Select White. Not sure where the blue is from.
Stamps: PTI Daydreamer and one of the Think Big Favorites that contains "Thank You".
Ink: Colorbox Pigment in Razzberry, Pink, and Black.  Memento Dye ink in Bamboo Leaves.
Dies: Spellbinders scalloped rectangles
Other: Clear embossing powder for flower and thank you.


  1. Fantastic card. Love the simplicity of it.

  2. Thanks Tracey! It's my first challenge and I'm glad I did it. I never would have used the blue gingham with spring moss if it weren't for the color inspiration photo with pinks and blues PTI posted.

  3. Gorgeous flower on the 'happy accident' panel, lol! Some of my best ideas are results of mistakes!! :)

  4. Beautiful card, Dawn! love it when great things happen as a result of a so-called mistake. That's the beauty of designing our own creations.

  5. This is so pretty! I love your placement of the flower and on a scalloped panel to boot! Thanks for the inspiration!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
