Papertrey Blog Hop



Papertrey is holding a Blog Hop on Friday, April 25, and I decided to participate. Our challenge was to use their Father Knows Best DP. I didn't own any, but Nichole, one of the owners, let us download a sample sheet. We could use it in any way we wanted, but we had to use squares no larger than about 1 1/2" square. So I decided to punch those cute little Three For You flowers.

This is a simple card, but I like it how it turned out. I used Papertrey Aqua Mist and Spring Moss. I had trouble with the green coming out too dark. It's actually much lighter and prettier. The aqua is more pale too in real life. You can see the colors more accurately here. The flowers are a yellow color which you might be able to see if you click on the photo to enlarge it. I retook the photo this afternoon outside, but it's gloomy here with a storm approaching.

The medallion is a Cuttlebug die. The ribbon is a lovely soft and flexible twill from Papertrey.

This card is for my son's girlfriend, who is graduating on Saturday from The University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Bioengineering. I hope she doesn't read my blog, because I haven't sent it yet! Thanks for visiting!

Simple and lovely Paula! Love the punched DSP flowers - great idea! This is a perfect example that serves as a reminder that we don't have to use many layers on a card to make it beautiful!

Love & friendship, Jules
