Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop





Time again for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This month, Nichole chose a beautiful inspiration photo, perfect for spring!!



Sometimes it is fun to change up your canvas size... This card is 4.25" x 4.25" square. I used strips of Harvest Gold and Lemon Tart cardstock to make the striped background. The frame is the new Framed Out #2 die, and the flowers are from the Sweet Spring stamp set.



Off to the pool today with the kiddos, then a spaghetti dinner at Mom's! YUM! :) Happy Sunday! :)

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Sweet Spring
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, PTI Tea Dye Duo
Paper: Kraft, Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Rustic Cream
Other: Framed Out #2 die, Aqua Mist Satin Ribbon
