PTI June Blog Hop



Welcome to June's PTI blog hop.  The inspiration picture this month brought green, yellow and grey as well as flowers, pleats and ruffles.




I stuck to the colour combo and used more of my Recollections DP pack from Michael's for the papers.  Some crimping of the flower die (my favorite PTI flower die to date) and ruffling of the ribbon brought in the texture of the inspiration picture.  If I had a sewing machine I would have pleated the ribbon, but since it is still on my wish list I opted for ruffling my ribbon instead.

I used this week's Verve sketch, which I tweaked just a bit so I could get the flower in.  The small thank you sentiment from A Year of Flowers: Lily of the Valley was the perfect size and font to squeeze in.  Will use this as another of my teacher thank you cards this coming week.

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you a great day :)

Great colors and I love the scrunch ribbon accent. Love those layered textured flowers. Hey.....psst....if you cut with a circle punch these flowers again....you can have the notched looking flowers, too. Sort of like two looks with one die. Great card, Marisa!
