Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

I'm playing along with the PTI June Blog Hop Challenge.
I used the PTI-Bloomers stamp set to do some
white-embossing on a watercolored background.
The PTI-Super Swoosh sentiment is stacked three high & clear-embossed.

This is the lovely photo we were given as our inspiration.
I was inspired by the colors and the white on the images.

Thanks for your visit.
Have a lovely day.
