Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop


It's the 25th of the month, which means that I'm playing along
with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, where this month's challenge is this:


Aren't those shoes adorable?!

I decided to combine this challenge with this week's
 CAS(E) This Sketch #129 designed by Michelle Williams
to make a birthday card for my mom:



Here's my card:


I used my MISTI to stamp my background using my SSS Wide Stripe stamp.
I actually stamped it twice in a pigment grey ink.
I stamped the sentiment (PTI's KIS: Birthday) in Versafine onyx black.


For the flowers, I used PTI's Brushed Blooms, which I stamped with Altenew's Buttercream
& Frayed Leaf and PTI's Orange Zest & Terracotta Tile.
A few PTI rainstones finish is off.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, July 2nd to link up your card.

I'm also linking this up to this week's
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking!
