Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

Hey everyone!
Just a quick post before I jump into the pool again – here’s the card I made with lovely inspiration from the folks at Papertrey Ink:


And here’s my card:


On the card you’ll find all of the above colours (plus a little black thrown in for contrast) and some of the gorgeous Papertrey products.
I used the following: Harvest Gold Cardstock, Background: Newsprint stamp set, Bitty Box patterned paper in Summer Sunrise and Twill Ribbon in Chartreuse as well as Solid Satin Ribbon in Melonberry.


Thanks for looking!
I’m off – you’ve gotta enjoy the sun while it’s there! *whee* B)
See ya!

P.S. And, of course, credit where it is due: the card idea is from this lovely number (3rd card) created by Dawn McVey 🙂
P.S.S. Apparently the sun is making me all dizzy – I shouldn’t forget to mention that this die-cut was made and given to me by my lovely friend Dana, thanks girl!! 🙂

  13. Nun ist mein Urlaub vorbei und ich habe es nicht einmal geschafft, meine Blogrunde zu drehen. Aber nun endlich bin ich wieder einmal hier bei Dir und finde gleich diese wunderschöne Karte. 🙂 Das Plaid-Muster in Bunt auf der Karte finde ich super. Vielleicht werde ich das mal adoptieren und mit den Stempeln von Waltzingmouse Stamps ausprobieren. Eine wunderschöne Karte ist das wieder geworden! 🙂

    Liebe Grüße, Tina
