Papertrey Blog Hop



It's that time again - I did not participate in Jan. and really missed it. The challenge this month was to view the DTs blogs/galleries and pick something that inspired you. Not an easy task as I find so many of them to be not only inspiring, but beautiful. Pretty soon I'm trying to put everything I like on one card - not good!! So, I picked something out of my comfort zone as I am generally more of a pastel person. But I do love the colors Betsy Veldman uses quite often - beautiful, vibrant, juicy colors - and so I decided to give it a try (The button really is pink not red like it looks in the photo)



Vintage Cream CS and button twine along with stamped sentiment from the "Mother" set and stamped vine from the "Turning a New Leaf" set are all from Papertrey, the pink CS is by Bazzill from Michael's as are the gems, ribbon, and button. The DP is from the Basic Grey, the Porcelain pack, the butterfly is from Tattered Angels, and the glitter is by Martha Stewart - also from Michael's.

Have a good evening everyone and enjoy the hop. Thanks for stopping by and take care.
