Papertrey Ink's challenge to be inspired by one of their designer's favorite projects from the past year. Usually, Melissa Phillips' work, though beautiful, doesn't really speak to me. She has a gorgeous shabby chic, vintagey and definitely girly style, and as you can see if you have looked at any of my cards, I do not. But as soon as I saw the first picture on the left in her inspiration board, I was in love!! I just absolutely love those orange felt flowers. And the card layout is really awesome, too. So, I changed up the colors and the flower material, but kept the layout. And I love it! Almost as much as the original. : )
Paper: Basic grey (stripes) and DCWV (grid)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink "Damask Designs" sentiment; Clear Dollar Stamps "Elegant Flourishes"; Verve "Joyful Blooms"
Dies: Papertrey Ink Turning a New Leaf die (trimmed down to use 1 or 2 leaves)
Buttons; Cinnamon Stickles on the flower centers
