Papertrey Blog Hop



This is my first Papertrey Blog Hop! I am excited!! Thanks for stopping by to check out my card!

I made a card, similar to this one, for a color challenge a few weeks ago and I have been wanting to make more since then. I also have been wanting to use these colors together so I thought I would combine my two ideas for tonight's blog hop. I am so into gray, white, yellow, and orange right now. I think they look great together!

I used Mega Mixed Messages to create my background. I have owned the Mixed Messages for a while and was thrilled when the Mega version came out! I got it immediately!

I am also loving my Sizzix Flower Layers die. I love the cool shape of the flowers. I used Polka Dot Basics and Faux Ribbon to stamp up my flower layers. I added a brad and put the flower on with dimensionals.

This card was so easy to make. The part that took me the longest was stamping up the background. I used all the sentiments that weren't specific to a holiday, baby, etc. I stamped those in Summer Sunrise and Smokey Shadow. I stamped the Just Because sentiment in orange to help it stand out. I thought this would be a great card to send to someone just because....

Thanks again for stopping by! I am excited to see what you have made and get myself some inspiration! :-) Happy Memorial Day!

Stamps - Mega Mixed Messages, Polka Dot Basics, Faux Ribbon (all PTI)
Paper - Summer Sunrise, Smokey Shadow (both PTI), Pumpkin Pie (SU)

Other - Sizzix Flower Layers Die, Brad from stash
