Many Blessings

For those of us tortured by no Make It Monday this week,
the brilliant minds of PTI have come up with,
'Create Along With Us'.
We are to choose inspiration from among the designers at Papertrey,
and do a card, using something that caught our eye,
but is our interpretation.
Rather impossible, but
similar to what my grandmother used to tell me when I would ask, 'who's your favorite?'
Answer? 'Can I choose between these 5 fingers?'

I finally settled on Melissa Phillip's 'Hello' card,
not that I could come close to what she's done,
but because I loved that little extra layer of banner stuck into the sassy slanted 'Hello'.
So here's my similar take:

Using the same quatrefoil die, and a country theme and colors,
I stamped my cherry bowl in New Leaf and Pure Poppy.
It was so much fun looking for stamps and dies in my stash that would 
match Melissa's creative release card, no need to wander far from it's sweetness! 

Scripted sentiment with the 'sending' banner from Big Hugs.
Posies from Mini Blooms and Embellished Elegance.
