Kylie's International Blog Hop Congratulations

It is time for another Kylie's International Blog Hop.   This month the theme is congratulations.  I was inspired by the Just Add Ink inspiration photo as well as the sketch for  the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge this week.  The inspiration picture had me thinking of an outdoor wedding. I can just imagine the bride walking through the gate and down the isle with pink roses. So, that was my beginning inspiration for this Congratulations card.  

 But, as I completed the card, I realized this could be used for any congratulations card needed. I feel like this card has a feminine touch, but I suppose it would work for either gender who loves gardens filled with pink flowers.  It would be perfect for a wedding congratulations, birth congrats for the mom, graduations, promotion, or really anything you want to congratulate.

Make sure you head over to the challenges at Just Add Ink #425 and CTS #288 to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.

Also, make sure you hop around this blog hop to see all the creative congratulations cards from all over the world.  While you're hopping, don't forget to vote for your favorites.  The top 10 will get invited to participate in another hop together later.

  1. So pretty, Angel! I love how your softly coloured roses compliment your choice of papers so beautifully and the textured leaves add another layer of elegance. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. I love how you carried the foliage theme right through your card Angel. The combination of coloured roses and DSP is really lovely too! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
