PTI April Blog Hop

It's PTI Blog Hop time again! Yay!

This month Nichole gave us a gorgeous inspiration picture.  I am guessing we will be seeing a LOT of Rosie Posie today, don't you?  ;) 
Here is my card, inspired by this picture...

I used the Quatrefoil die for a little masked background.   Then I added a mat stack and some Rosie Posie.  I finished it off with a little Copic detail.  The sentiment is from Communique Sentiments.  Love that set too!
