Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge


Hello, blog hoppers!  Posting today for Papertrey Ink's April Blog Hop.



The photo below is this month's inspiration:

...and here's my card:


I've been inspired by the colors, the floral images and polka dots (represented by the rhinestones on my card).

Had actually been aiming for a one-layer card and the above image panel is what started as a draft/practice/test for me.  I was so surprised it turned out clean- looking and "error-free" haha!  So then i decided to use it and go tone-on-tone with the white card base.  If i had to do it again, though, i would have stamped the sentiment with a black ink.

Supply list:  Cardstock - AC; stamps - Papertrey Ink (Pretty Peonies, Beautiful Butterflies); inks - Papertrey Ink (Raspberry Fizz), Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass), Memento (London Fog); bling - Doodlebug; adhesive - Kokuyo Dot Liner.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I really appreciate it :)

Happy hopping!
