Papertrey Ink Birthday Card

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry I haven't been round to visit for a while but I've been under the weather for a week now and haven't had the energy to do much. I'm lucky that I had scheduled the last 2 posts before I got the virus and I had made this card a couple of weeks ago for the blog hop, so I'm good to go for today.

It's time for the PTI blog hop, and this time Nichole asked us to get some inspiration from this homespun picture

July Blog Hop Inspiration

I took inspiration from the banner, the bird, the colours and from the little prints on the banner to come up with this bright and cheery card:-



I used the double ended banner dies to create the banner in the three colours and stamped them with the same colour ink using the Bitty Background stamps in gingham, dots and flowers.




The sentiment is from  Movers and Shakers Sentiments, and the birds are from Little Bitty Birds. I impressed the panel with the Canvas Impression Plate and cut a frame from aqua mist card, which was then matted onto red card. A light coating of Wink of Stella glitter finished it off.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's interpretation of this, but that's all from me today.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs from a distance so you don't catch this virus!
