Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

This is my second post of the day.  Scroll down to see my GDT card for The Challenge.

Blog hop inspirationI love the PTI Blog Hops & try not to ever miss one. To be honest, I would never have picked this month's theme. However, I've found lots of inspiration looking through my stamping magazines even when the card didn't appeal to me.  I started looking through my PTI stamp sets & a light bulb came on when I saw Trendy Tree Tops.  Just what I needed--a circle with lines that I could use for an ombre card!  My Mini MISTI made stamping with PTI Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise & Terracotta Tile really easy.  The circles are covered with WOS for a lovely shimmer.  
PTI Take Three die was cut from kraft cardstock 3 times & the panel was mounted with foam tape to the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Summer Sunrise, again using the MISTI.  Finished off with 3 PPP clear sequins.  I'll be sending this to a blogging friend.  I'm also entering the Share Joy Challenge & Word Art Wednesday.  Lots of inspiration, so better get hopping!

  37. I don't have enough PTI products to even 'think' about entering their challenges; even if I did, this one would have seen me running the opposite direction. Once again, you've risen to the task. Your card is brilliant!
