Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

I have a card to share for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Our challenge was to use this beautiful photo as inspiration:


Isn't it pretty?
I was inspired by the colours and chose to use my new Floral Bouquet stamp set.
Here's my card:


I diecut my Floral Bouquet twice and stamped it using Altenew Evening Grey,
Morning Frost, Blush, Frosted Pink, Buttercream and Orange Cream.
I adhered them to my card using dimensional adhesive and then trimmed off
the pieces that were hanging over the edge of the card.  
I adhered some of these pieces back onto my card.
I stamped my sentiment using Inspired: Hope.

Thanks for looking!
