Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

I was inspired to join the June Blog Hop over at Papertrey Ink. Also, I have some stamp sets that haven't seen in yet (hangs her head in shame) and it's high time they did!

Here's the inspiration picture:

Isn't it cool?  I was totally drawn to the pastel colors and I had a great idea so I just had to create. I love those moments, don't you?

Here's what I created:
I made a group of three cards.  I decided to experiment using clear and white embossing powder to see which one I liked the best. As it turns out, at the end I really can't tell the difference. The white embossing does stand out a bit more than the clear, but I like both. 

Here's a close up of each card:

Please pop over to the Capture the Moment blog to add your card to the hop. It's open until 11p, EST tonight. You can also check out everyone's submissions. They are some beautiful pieces of artwork over there.

Thanks for hopping by.

Ink:  SU ballet blue, pretty in pink, celery green, versamark
Embellishments:  Martha Stewart twine, charm, irisdescent stickles, clear and white embossing powder
Tools:  Spellbinders circles and scalloped circles, Martha Stewart butterfly punch
