Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

Blog-hop-logo

Hey there! It's time for April's Blog Hop for Papertrey Ink! I almost didn't participate this month, but I decided after work last night, that I would try to come up with something...

This month we had an inspiration challenge. We were to make a card or project using inspiration from:

Blog hop inspiration

For some reason this was a little tougher for me. And with the limited time I had to make my card, this is what I came up with:


A little different from my usual cards. I drew my inspiration from the colors and patterns of the fabric. I used Friends Till The End and dies. I cut the flowers from Papertrey's Damask Pattern Paper to go along with the damask in the fabrics. I also used flowers as my focal point to go with the flowers in the fabric. I chose the Polka dot paper from Funky Town to go with the polka dot fabric. Finally, I chose to use the doily and white trim to soften the look a little, like the inspiration photo.

Well, that's all for me today! I can't wait to see what all you talented Papertrey lovers did with this inspiration photo! I'm sure you will all blow me away, like always!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the web!

Wow! Love this, jessica. The doily is a perfect way to ground your big, beautiful flowers. The damask design on the leaves is a great detail! Thanks for your sweet comment, too!

Such pretty flowers cut from the damask paper Jessica, but what really, really, really drew me to the card was that polka dot paper. Can you tell I really liked it? I had forgotten about that pattern and it is so bright and cheery, great job on the blog hop today.
