PTI March Blog Hop



Papertrey Ink's March blog hop was inspired by this photo of sweet yellows paired with aquas. Such a pretty spring color combination, don't you think?

I purchased some new papers from My Mind's Eye and couldn't wait to use them. I decided to keep it simple today with just papers and sentiment. But you know me. I may think "I'll keep it simple", but then I'm distracted by felt and lace and ribbon, and before you know it, what was supposed to be a fast and simple card took me all day!


Have you ever gone out to eat at a restaurant and thought "I'm not very hungry, so I'll just get the soup." And you end up ordering the soup...and the salad...and the entree...and the dessert! This card is the soup. Everything from soup to nuts!

{today's brew: Think Big Favorites #3 and Label Basics (PTI), white cardstock (PTI), papers (My Mind's Eye), so saffron ink and ribbon(SU), cool caribbean ink(SU), label die (PTI), flower die (My Favorite Things), baker's twine, button (PTI), felt (PTI), lace (American Crafts)}


Thanks for stopping by the cafe, today! Next time, just the soup. I promise!

  2. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who tries to go "simple" and ends up with "surf and turf". LOL! This is so classically beautiful- love it! :)

  3. Maryrose...in yet another twist of fate, I, TOO, am obsessed with pretty My Mind's Eye papers lately :) Your yellow felt bloom is fabulous with them! I love it layered over that grosgrain (ANOTHER new obsession of mine...well, second to gingham you know ;))!! Such an adorable card!
