Can you believe it's already time for Mother's Day? 2010 is going by so quickly!
Nerina has issued a new challenge for the Papertrey Peeps - #7 An Inspiring Life. We were to visit A Creative Mint .... select a photo that inspired us and start creating!! I choose a fairly recent photo taken on April 25th. The colors are stunning! I would love to have this beautiful bouquet in my home.
I choose to pick up the pinks and a touch of purple is my tissue paper flower. Just like the different colors of pink roses, I used several different pink papers. I had some difficulty photographing the pinks. They are lighter in person.
Silver embossing powder, Viva silver pearl dots, and a touch of silver in the flower continued the classy feel.
Creating my own background papers using sandable cardstock and impression plates is so much fun!! You need to try this.
Have a great week everyone!!! ~Rhonda
