Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Today is the Papertrey Ink blog hop challenge, based on this inspiration piece:

I have been wanting to make a vintage style card, ala Melissa Phillips, so this is what I came up with (forgive the photo-overcast, rainy in SoCal today):

here is another one:

Wow, what a difference the weather makes!  The colors of this are not as pretty as in real life.  Oh well, just imagine PTI aqua mist card stock, and October Afternoon Modern Homemaker yellow paper coated with gesso...much closer to the beautiful, bright colors in the inspirational piece.  Thanks for stopping by!


Paper: PTI Aqua Mist,  October Afternoon Modern Homemaker
Ink:  Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Stamps: PTI Tiny Tags

Details: Aqua Mist felt,  PTI and MFT dies, Maya Road rose and pins, SU button, image from Iralamijashop, seam binding from MemrieMare.
