Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop




Time again for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! I absolutely ADORE the inspiration photo. Pale Aqua and Hot Pink are not colors that I would initially think to pair together, but boy do they make a beautiful statement! See for yourself... here is the inpiration photo for this month's hop.



See, I told you! :) Inspired by the color combo, the use of multiple patterns and the vintage feel of the patterns, I created this card:



I used the Butterfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating die along with a sentiment from Tremendous Treats Birthday. The large butterfly cut out was made using the Signature Series Butterfly. The fun pinked squares were made using the Button Card die set and the sentiment is stamped on a Double Ended Banner diecut. Those yummy patterned papers are from the Raspberry Fizz and Aqua Mist Pattern Paper Packs (LOVE!!) and the Funky Town Paper Pad.

That's all for now... Thanks for stopping by! Off to hop! :)

These vibrant colors are beautiful together! The most striking feature of this card, for me, is the perfect balance of elements; the three vertical and three diagonal fit together wonderfully.
