Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

The Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge for April was to use the pattern paper download that Nichole provided in a creative way. Since they were small square swatches of the paper, I cut them out and folded them in half to create this Iris Twist window. I lined the window using the Faux Ribbon set with Sunflower Dew Drops at the corners. The sentiment was stamped in Burnt Umber on the front. Through the window in the card, you can see the tree from Father Knows Best that I stamped on the inside. Check out the other creations for this month's Blog Hop Challenge. I'm going to do that now! There are 25 blogs that were randomly chosen to be in the contest that you can visit and actually vote for your favorite. Unfortunately I'm not one of them, but there's a whole Extras Thread that you can view and see what those people have created. All in all, it's a night of fun! Hope you can join in! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Father Knows Best, Faux Ribbon (Papertrey Ink); Paper- white Stamper's Select, patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); Ink- Burnt Umber (Palette), Spring Moss (Papertrey Ink), Old Olive, Close to Cocoa (SU); Accessories- Sunflower Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest), paper piercer.
