Papertrey Ink Birthday Card


Blog-hop-logo

Hello again,

I'm back for a second time today to join in the February Blog Hop over at Papertrey Ink. This time Nichole gave us some photo inspiration

February-blog-hop

'Your challenge this month is to create a spring themed project!  Whether you use a fresh spring color palette or use spring imagery, pull out all the stops to help elude the winter blues!'


I was drawn to the green and lilac colours of the muscari bulbs and the mixed colours of the tiny eggs, and as I had a birthday card to create for my friend Anne, I came up with this card:-





The stamps used are from Reasons to Smile, Think Big Favorites #13, and Birthday Basics. The tab at the top is part of a Fillable Frame, and the ampersand was cut on my Silhouette Cameo. The other dies are from My Favorite Things and Lil' Inkers Designs. The colours used are Limeade Ice, Plum Pudding and and Lavender Moon.

Enjoy the hop!

I'd like to enter this into

Thanks for stopping by
