Bloom: Create Along With Us June '18

Create Along With Us: PTI's invitation to case their designer's ideas during
release week.
There's no end to special treats, from color combos to little touches of brilliance!

Melissa Phillips' cards caught my eye on the first day out, particularly this pastel bauble:

From her use of pearls and glitter paper to layers and layers of lovliness, I was hooked!
(get it? Hooked? Under the sea? LOL!)
Enough of me 'fishing' for laughs, here's my take on Melissa's sweet card.

A list of what I used is at the end of my post.
I LOVED using Perfect Pearls on my background, for a subtle texture. 
(Wish you could see the sheen from the pearls) 
And Melissa's idea of the Embossing Enamel was genius! In the air, as well as
under the sea!
Not having the undersea elements (yet!), I used flowers and hummingbird for my
color pop.


  1. I loved Melissa's card too and am just blown away how you changed it from an under the sea card to a floral card with all the same but different layers of goodness Nancy! I have yet to ink up my Text & Texture: Roses set, but I absolutely LOVE how you used it on your background...just lovely!! And all the sparkle too! FABULOUS card my friend!! :0)

  2. Fantastic CAS Nancy! Your theme is different from Melissa's but you nailed all the colors and layers she
    used. Gorgeous job!

  3. Oh my goodness Nancy, this is incredible! I love the pastels with the darling hummer and all those lucious flowers and leaves. The sparkle adds wonderful texture too. You are amazing my friend!

  4. Gorgeous card, Nancy. I love your take on Melissa's card.

  5. Beautiful...... LOVE every perfect detail!!

  6. This is wonderful, Nancy! Love your take on Melissa's card with all the different images, colors, and textures! Great design!

  7. Oh my goodness, Nancy, I had to really look at both cards carefully to note the differences. Awesome creation using flowers and the hummingbird to pop some color. Lovely textures,too!


So happy you came for a visit. I love reading your comments!
