PTI April Blog Hop

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

A co-worker shared with me yesterday that she recently got engaged! I am so happy for her, so I decided to make her a card to let her know. I decided to do so for this month's PTI Blog Hop, where the challenge was to be inspired by this photo:
(Isn't it lovely! I think these fabrics would make such a beautiful baby quilt!)

I was inspired by the stacks of patterns, as well as the large floral designs. Here's the card I made:


I used PTI cardstock (rustic cream), stamps (rosie posie, botanical silhouettes) & dies (rosie posie). I also used patterned paper: My Mind's Eye (both blue polkadots), The Girl's Paperie (floral & text) and Crate (bottom pink).

Thanks for looking!
