June PTI Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. This month's challenge was to use a photo as inspiration. Here's the trigger photo:
And here's my card:

There's something about the photo that reminded me of the patterned paper which I matted on Dark Chocolate cardstock. I stamped the main image on a piece of cardstock that I had cut with PTI's Mat Stack 3 die. To get the two-toned berries, I stamped my image, turned my stamp about 90 degrees and stamped again without reinking. I love the depth that this technique gives the wreath. Finally, I used distress ink around the edges, tied the ribbon and adhered the mat with foam adhesive.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream; Dark Chocolate);
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket (Honey Pie):
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Wreath for All Seasons):
Inks: Ranger (Coffee); Stampin' Up! (Regal Rose); Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Antique Linen;
Tools: Papertrey Ink Die (Mat Stack 3);
Ribbon: EK Success

Very pretty, Linda! Love the papers, and it's apparent how you could see them in the inspiration photo. The colors are delicious. I like how you achieved extra depth to the wreath with a second stamping.
