MY FIRST Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop Challenge

I can't believe this is my first challenge EVER.  I can already tell that I will soon be addicted!  This was so much fun!  The theme of this challenge is The Fruits of Summer.  Here is the color palette that I chose:

And here is my card:

I just love this color combination and I'm not sure that I would have come up with putting these colors together on my own.  Two different shades of green and 2 different shades of pink.....  I love the look of these colors against the black, it sure gives it a nice POP!

The squares were punched using a 1.25" punch, then I just rounded one of the corners.  The sentiment on the bottom is embossed in white and I just so happened to have the perfect ribbon to match!  Don't you just love when that happens?

The card went together pretty quickly once I had an idea of how I wanted the card to look.  I tried to use as many PTI products as I could and I used quite a few!

As always, thanks for stopping by!  (I might just go make another card for the challenge!)

Supplies used:   Papertrey Ink - Around and About Sentiments, Think Big Favorites #13, Beautiful Blooms II with coordinating flower die and Hibiscus Burst ink
