Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop {Embroidered Inspiration}


Hi there!  I am super excited about participating in this month's PTI Blog Hop!  The theme this month is Embroidered Inspiration.  I went straight to Pinterest and there are SO many beautiful embroidered pieces to choose from. It was quite hard to narrow it down, but I ended up choosing this photo as the inspiration for my card today:


I am still pretty smitten with my Doodlie Do stamp set.  I got it a few months back when it was first released, and it has become one of my favorite and most used PTI sets to date.  LOVE!  The flowers in the inspiration photo are sort of shaped like the Doodlie Do flowers, and I just love the color combo too.  Here is my card:

Embroidered Inspiration

The sentiment is from Tremendous Treats: Valentine and the zigzag border image is from Sew Simple Borders.  I am loving the new Tropical Teal color too... this was the first time I used the ink and the color is just gorgeous!

I appreciate you stopping by today!  I can't wait to hop!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Doodlie Do, Tremendous Treats: Valentine, Sew Simple Borders
Paper: SS White, Hawaiian Shores Pattern Pack
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tropical Teal
Other: Copic Markers, Wink of Stella Clear Pen, Hawaiian Shores Buttons, New Leaf Twine, Sequins, Foam Tape
