Floral Hop

Hi everyone! 

Hop, hop, hop ... off to the shop, to buy some brand new toys! (That's part of a ditty from my hubby's childhood - but I have found that for me, blog hops often tend to follow the same trend :0)

Soooo, this is the lovely bouquet that I chose:

I spent a bit of time at the site this photo came from - wow, lovely stuff!

The oranges in the PTI palette really spoke to me, so that is where things went ...

Hop Thanks Left

The Melon Berry did make a small appearance - I coloured the rhinestones in to match.

Hop Thanks Deet

Thanks for stopping by on your rounds!

I love the way you've used the Bitty Backgrounds to 'ground' the floral images. They look like little pieces of vintage fabric behind those gorgeous roses. The flourish creates such a beautiful accent as well. Wonderful!!

Gorgeous card!

Your composition is jaw-droppingly stunning. The 'melon berry' really didn't need a prominent spot, did it; it would have been a distraction. Confession. Orange is my least favorite color, and I could still look at this glorious card all day long!
