PTI February Blog Hop

This month's Blog Hop Challenge was to incorporate the flowers, sights and colors of spring into your project. It's been a while since I've been able to participate in the Blog Hop, so when I found a little extra time today, I thought I'd create a "springy" card for a friend. I used the Beautiful Blooms set from Papertrey Ink with Berry Sorbet and So Saffron to give a light, spring feel. The flowers are all die cut using the largest die in the Flowers Cuttlebug die set. I attached them to the top of the card front and trimmed the end flowers. It gives a nice texture to the, otherwise, simple card. You can see all of the creations of those participating in the Blog Hop tonight in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Forum. Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Beautiful Blooms (PTI); Ink- So Saffron (SU), Berry Sorbet (PTI), Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- So Saffron (SU), white (Georgia-Pacific); Accessories- Flowers Die set (Provocraft), Berry Sorbet ribbon (PTI), paper piercer; Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
