August Blog Hop Inspiration
I'm stopping in to share the Card that I've made for the August Paper Trey Ink Blog Hop!!
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the Colors in this Inspiration Photo!! They just make me HAPPY!! I was having a HARD Time trying to decide on a Direction I wanted to go in because I was INSPIRED by SO MANY THINGS in this Photo!! After looking through my Paper Stash though I decided it would be FUN to create a Card using LOTS of Layers and Mixing the Different Colors along with adding in some of the Metallic Colors and then also adding some of the Soft Elements too!! This card is definitely a Play on the Hard and Soft Textures that are going on in the Inspiration Photo and this is what I came up with!! I used the Paper Trey Ink Life is Beautiful Die Collection and then I used the Paper Trey Ink Limitless Layers: 21/2 " Circle Die Collection to create my Window in the Front of the Card!! I Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment from the Paper Trey Ink Year Round Happiness Stamp Set onto one of the Small Banner Die Cuts from the Paper Trey Ink Double-Ended Banners Die Set!! I added some Colored Twine and some Sequins and my Card was done!! =)
I hope you like it as much as I do and if you have time I hope you'll JOIN in the FUN over on the Paper Trey Ink Blog!! If you don't have the Time to Create though don't FORGET to check out all of the AMAZING Inspiration!! I KNOW you WON'T be disappointed!!
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
