Papertrey Blog Hop: Bouquet Builders

This is my THIRD post today!!!

Today is the monthly Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  They have given us seven different gorgeous color schemes to choose from and challenged us to create a floral project.  On a whim, I decided to find the oldest floral Papertrey set that I had - it's called Green Thumb and comes from the second ever release in March of 2007.  (FYI - I have the very first set too - Paper Tray- and it has a little flower blossom in it, but I just couldn't build a bouquet with it!)  The butterfly and sentiment did come from slightly newer sets!

I actually started out this challenge by challenging myself to colors that I find challenging.  Didja follow that?  One of the other color schemes includes a couple of colors that I just never use.  So I actually started out with this card.

I don't dislike this card, but I so love bold colors on white (like the first card), that I just can't be happy with this one.

I am looking forward to being able to hop through all of the entries - bouquets of flowers - it's going to be gorgeous!
