PTI March blog hop


I hope you are having a fabulous weekend. I am so excited about today's PTI blog hop.  Since starting up my blog, I have had so much fun participating in the blog hop and I have gained so much inspiration from fellow crafters. Here is our lovely inspiration photo.


In making my card, I had started off trying to incorporate polka dots...nothing. And then I thought about stripes...still nothing. Since I do not have any yellow ink, it was becoming quite difficult. So I ended up stamping my entire cardfront with Background basics: Houndstooth in Aqua Mist. I added a ribbon flower that I had learned from Laurie Willison at Soapbox Creations. I used some scrap cardstock impressed with my Sunshine IP to add some texture. Thanks for looking and enjoy the hop!
