Papertrey's April Blog Hop


Blog-hop-logo
Welcome to PTI's April Blog Hop! We have the following inspiration photo to use for our cards.

Blog hop inspiration

And here is the card I've made. It uses the "You've Been Framed: Oval" die and stamps, as well as the flowers and stamps from Bitty Bouquet. For the ombre background, I used a sheet from the "Beautiful Brushstrokes" patterned paper. I felt a bit nostalgic, so dug out some pearl adhesives and an old flourish die for embellishments.
Inks: Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst, Berry Sorbet, Enchanted Evening, Limeade Ice
Thanks for looking!

  1. Soooo Pretty! Love how you interrupted the inspirational photo, I find that is one of the most fascinating things about these Blog Hops! Your flowers from the Bitty set are just lovely cascading like that, makes me think of a beautiful hanging basket (someday I hope to hang some, just need the warmth to come and stay!) LOVE your ombre background too, the pretty shades of pink are well.....pretty! :) Have a happy day!!!
