You know what day it is? Well, yes, it is FRIDAY! And, it's also Papertrey Ink Blog Hop day for July! Yippeeeee. Two of my favorite things! I had SO. MUCH. FUN. making this card I'm sharing today. I think my card will win the award for the most products ever used on one card. LOL. Seriously, the photo inspiration for today's challenge was so yummy. I just couldn't help myself. I probably could have made 10 cards if I had the time. The color scheme is beautiful....it has birds, and gingham...and a doily, and flowers, and a banner...and hearts! Squee! You have all day to make a card too - c'mon and join in the fun. This is one of my fav hops because everyone makes such wonderful cards and it's fun to check 'em out. CLICK HERE to see the post.
Without further ado, here is my card:
I adore this word die! I layered it with red on the bottom and white on top - so crisp!
I used all the Button Stacks dies to make my flowers. That was so much fun - mixing and matching everything until I got it just the way I wanted it.
A pretty row of pennants....
Here is the inspiration photo....LOVE!
You see from the inspiration photo...I was INSPIRED! LOL. I used the color scheme without the green, the buttons, the heart shape, the banner..... I couldn't stop!
This shot shows my layers and textures...
Close up of those button flowers....I threaded some twine through some of them for a more shabby chic feeling. To others I added some enamel dots in that pretty turquoise...
I LOOOOOVE PTI BLOG HOP DAY! So much to see....this time especially. I can't wait to check out everyone else's blogs to see how they were inspired by the photo. Have a super wonderful day my crafty friends, and a great weekend. XOXO
