Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

Blog-hop-logo


Hurrah--it's PTI Blog Hop day!  I love that they announce the theme ahead of time & this month it's one of my favorite color combos--navy & pink.

Ros's wonderful card to case for City Crafter Challenge Blog provided inspiration.  I used a focal point (moved to off-center), sequins (thank you, Lai-Yoke!) & a bow.  
CCCB Card to Case

The PTI products are The Sweet Life, Mat Stack 3 & inks Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz & Enchanted Evening.  I had fun making a crumpled seam-binding bow for the second time.  I'm also entering at Loves Rubberstamps
Always lots of fabulous cards for PTI hops, so I'll keep this short leaving you with a picture of my Spring hanging basket.  Off to work, but I'll catch up with you soon. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love your new basket and love even more that it is purple!!! We picked up a couple of baskets for the house this week as well. It's very exciting. Your card is very elegant and yet the sequins make it a fun card too. It's a good case of the original! Great work!
