Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

It is that time again, time for this month's PTI blog hop and isn't the inspiration photo just so beautiful! I love the colors but on my card focused on the damask prints.  I added a bit more green too.  What I love about this card but it is a bit difficult to see in the photo, but I used the Damask Impression plate for my background paper and like how it coordinates with the printed paper for my flowers. I wanted to stamp the Mother's Day image on a 1 3/4 inch circle but always have such a difficult time getting my image centered, but early this month Heather Nichols from the PTI design had a post where she stamped to 1 3/4 inch images and them punched them out using a punch the same size, just such a brilliant idea that I had to get a new punch, thanks Heather for the inspiration! Thanks for taking a peek!
