Papertrey Ink February 2015 Blog Hop

Hello there!  I'm sharing a card made for PTI February Blog Hop.  Isn't the inspiration gorgeous?  I had so many ideas on how to make my card and that became a small issue.  I scrapped 3 cards prior to choosing this one.  I partially blamed it on making all 3 bad cards at midnight when i couldn't even see straight lol.  

On this card, i'm using the soft colors seen on the upper right corner of the inspirational image: pink, aqua, purple.  I started out with water coloring a piece of watercolor paper.  I stamped and white embossed my ferns on vellum.  This is inspired by the white pattern on the inspirational image.  I trimmed the water colored card stock, die cut my ferns and adhered on top.  To add more dimension, i only applied adhesive toward the center of the ferns, then curled the leaves up a little bit.  For the sentiment, i stamped it on a small rectangle piece of card stock and anchored it over the fern using thin foam tape.  

I hope you like it.  Thanks in advance for your wonderful comments.  Have a great day!!
