Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop Challenge

Every month at Papertrey  Ink Nicole Heady posts a photo on her which we are to use to inspire us to create a project.  This month's is phenomenal.  Check it out below:
I just love the black icing and pretty floral clusters with the cookie edge peeking through.  Nicole posted the photo in advance and the minute I saw it I couldn't wait to create!  It is so inspiring!  It was nice to have my blog hop card done early for once!

I am thrilled with how this card turned out!  It's even prettier in real life.  I used two different shades of pink (lovely lady, and sweet blush) but in the photos the pink aren't as vibrant as they are in real life for some reason.  I initially wanted to use roses but the ones I had just weren't the right size.  PTI's Color Pop Floral blossoms were perfect.  I took a technique from Nicole by drawing in little white dots around my vine and in the center of the flowers.  I love this little detail!  I once again used a sentiment from PTI's colorful words.  It is heat embossed in white.  I can't wait to try this card design with other colors and other sentiments.  This would work well for Mother's Day!

Oh and I did color over the flowers with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to give them some shimmer.  I also added some glossy accents to the berries.  I tried to capture this in the photo below.
