Papertrey May Bloghop

Happy Wednesday! It is also the 25th so it is time for another Papertrey Bloghop.

This month the theme is Flowers.
I have a lot of ideas for things to make with flowers but I only had time to make one thing so this is what I came up with.

I originally started this card last week for the Case Study Challenge using this card made by Sara Martina Parker as my inspiration. Unfortunately I did not get it done in time to enter that challenge but since it already had flowers on it I decided to finish it and use it for the Bloghop instead. I started by stamping the tulips from the Spring Jar Fillers set then scanned them and scaled them down to fit on a button card diecut. Next I cut out another button card and cut the center out using an oval Nestability die to make it look like a seed packet then I colored the tulips with Copics. When I was done with that I stamped the sentiment from Flower Garden sentiments on a frame image from the Mat Stack 2 set which by the way fits perfectly on the button cards. The patterned cardstock is from Crate Paper's Portrait collection. The crochet trim is from my stash. I made the seam binding by spraying some light blue that I had with turquoise glimmer mist. The medallion flower was made using this tutorial but I only used 6" of felt. The silver button is from Tim Holtz. Some pearl embellishments and machine stitching finish it off.
I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with on Nicole's blog now because I can never have enough ideas for things to make with flowers! I hope to be back soon with more to share. Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is a great one!
