Hello everyone and Happy Papertrey Blog Hop! There are about five things I cannot believe this evening...but I'll only share two: #1) I cannot believe May is almost over...and #2) I cannot believe I actually finished a card for this Blog Hop! To be honest, the end of school is likely worse than the beginning of school simply because there are so many loose ends to be tied up, awards, and making sure kiddos are set for graduation! Sooo....I debated whether or not I had time for a post today...but I remembered a challenge I set for myself several Blog Hops ago, and that was to create an 'all-over' pattern, single layered card. Well, my card isn't perfect, but my self-inflicted challenge has been met!! I do think it comes quite close to the inspiration for PTI's May Blog Hop Challenge. Take a look at the gorgeous inspiration photo:
I am in love with the whimsical pattern and the florals. I tried to capture some of the colors using Stormy Sea, Pale Peony, and Berry Sorbet. For my card, the Gran's Garden stamp set was perfect as was the sentiment from Cutaway Tags: Spring. While I should get back to 'schooling,' I think I'll take a peek at all of the other awesome cards! There is still time to play along...so get Hoppin'!
