PTI June blog hop - Just thinking of you...

Yea! I get to play in the Papertrey, Ink blog hop this month! Here's the inspiration photo.

This months inspiration is a fun take on florals, ruffles & pleats.  I really liked the color combo on this and designed my card around it as well.

The Embellished stamp set was used to create the back ground using Memories Alligator Chalk Ink and Yellow chalk ink from Studio G.  I used some yellow construction paper to create the pleats and the flower. Distress ink in Scattered Straw is sponged onto the ends of the petals. Added a small white button to the center to create a focal point. Green grosgrain ribbon is from RABOM.

All dies used in this project are from Papertrey, Ink.

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear (see) what you think!
