Papertrey Ink July 2011 Blog Hop


It's that time of the month again, time to hop around the internet and see all of the fabulous things people are making with PTI products! This month's inspiration picture can be seen below:
I love the pop of life that the orange curtains in the photo create against the otherwise very serene color scheme, so I chose that element to focus on. I also like the pattern in the quilt and rather than use the Mehndi Medallion which was the first thing to come to mind, I pulled out Delightful Doilies to create my background. I stamped the images using True Black ink on Kraft cardstock randomly. I added the happy birthday sentiment from Inside & Out: Birthday stamped onto Stampers Select White cardstock cut with the Fillable Frames #11 die. I tied on a piece of Orange Zest twill ribbon and added the Prima e. line jewels. Finally, this was matted on a Stampers Select White card base. Super simple, yet classy with that great pop of color.

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the hop! You can find the other amazing cards by going to Nichole's blog HERE.
