Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

Blog-hop-logo

Good Morning on this Monday morning, blog hoppers! Life has been kind of hectic around here lately, and last month I made a card for the hop, but was about 2 minutes late in getting it posted, so I wanted to make sure I had something ready to go this month! This month we had a beautiful inspiration picture to work from:

I always tend to take these challenges quite literally, and this month was no exception...


Not a lot of stamping on this one. Again, time was of the essence, and I think I spent the most time scouring my patterned paper stash trying to find a pattern that resembled the beautiful fabric in the pillow. I used a Harvest Gold 4 1/4 square base. I had cut the leaves from Ocean Tides felt, and made the little flower from Aqua Mist saddle stitch ribbon, and finished it off with a Tiny Tags stamped in Harvest Gold and New Leaf.

I have a few more cards I'll be sharing this week, and I'll be working on getting some life back into my neglected blog!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
