PTI January Blog Hop

So the challenge for the blog hop is Black Backgrounds.
I had to do a little thinking on that one. So I looked around for a little inspiration and found some via the crack that is Pinterest. I like the color combo of blue (aqua), green and black with a little white thrown in - so here's what I came up with. I ended up backing the whole thing up in more aqua which seemed to make it pop a bit more. I used a PTI Impression Plate on the black background - its subtle but it's nice :-)
I'm kinda chuckling to myself here - I'm making flowery cards while the snow is coming down outside. Ah well... Have a good one!
