PTI Blog Hop

April-Blog-Hop-InspirationI had thoughts of making some French Knots on my card for the PTI Embroidered Inspiration Blog Hop, but that didn't work out.  I ended up with a simple circle card using the sweet flowers from Tag-It's 3, being inspired by the flowers in the upper left box of the inspiration photo.  The sentiment is from Flower Fusion 8.  I die cut cardstock & cross stitch fabric with the Spellbinder circle for the card front. The purple paper was a scrap, so I'm also entering Pixie's Snippets Playground.  I thought the butterfly punch was a little too big, but vellum for the top layer made it work.  
This will be another card to go in one of my Random Acts of Kindness packages.  Gotta work today, but I'll be checking the hop when I get home.  TGIF!

Whoa, as in whoa-AWESOME! Like Darnell, I too needed to upright myself in my chair, so dazzled I was with this GEM!!. The cross-stitch fabric is a beautiful canvas for your pretty frame of flowers and lovely lilac background. The butterflies...swoon! Another shuffle in the Top 5 Favourites list...this one may be jaunting to first. LOVE it!!! Hugs~c
