PTI Blog Hop

Welcome to the June 2012 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  This month's inspiration was a fun take on florals, ruffles and pleats.  Here's the inspiration:

And here's my card:   

I was definitely drawn to the large pillow in the inspiration photo so I pulled out a piece of Aqua Mist cardstock and began stamping.  (The green ink is an old "In Color" from Stampin' Up!  The yellow flower centers were stamped on Lemon Tart and punched out with a small circle punch. The pleated trim is actually washi tape from Target. I just manipulated the tape back and forth until I got the pleats the way I wanted them.  Here's a closer look:


Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist; Lemon Tart); Stampin' Up (Naturals White);
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (All About You);
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Wild Wasabi);
Tools:  Stampin' Up! (circle punch) Spellbinders Nestabilities (Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large);
Misc.: Target (washi tape); My Mind's Eye (twine).

Lovely soft summery colors! You did a great job working with the inspiration photo. Love the polka dots on the sentiment.
