Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop


Time again for the Papertrey Ink blog hop!  This month, we were challenged to use a cover art illustration as inspiration.  We could choose our own book, or choose from a selection that Nichole provided.  I chose to use the bottom center image here as my inspiration:


I had to resist the urge to add more to this card.  It is pretty CAS which is not usually my style, but the inspiration photo is clean and graphic.  I used the In the Meadow (snowdrifts) dies, along with several colors of cardstock to create the waves and the butterflies are the Signature Series Butterfly and Butterfly Dreams Butterfly dies.




Looking forward to hopping around and taking in the inspiration!  Thanks for stopping by! :)

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Tremendous Treats Birthday
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: White, Soft Stone, Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise, Melon Berry, Hawaiian Shores, Winter Wisteria, Aqua Mist Pattern Pack
Dies: Double Ended Banner, In the Meadow (snowdrifts), Signature Series Butterfly, Butterfly Dreams Butterfly

Beautiful! And know what you mean about restraint, it's hard to quit sometimes.
