Papertrey Ink and Sue Wilson birthday card

Blog-hop-logo

Hello everyone, and a specially warm welcome to Shirley of Card Art etc blog who is joining us as a new follower this week. Shirley is a wonderful card artist who can do amazing things with die cuts, and the inside of her cards, and the envelopes look just as beautiful as the cards fronts (something that I need to pay more attention to!) Do pop over to say hello and get some inspiration from her work.

Well today is the day for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and this time Nichole has challenged us to create a navy and pink card, giving us this lovely inspiration photo


Blog hop inspiration

I came up with this card





I used Sue Wilson Classic Adorned Squares for the shaped blue panels, and I really like the elegant shape. To give the pink panel a bit more interest, I stamped it tone on tone with the Tin Types background stamp to echo the diamond shape of the central panel:-




The flower is from Bitty Bouquets which I fussy cut and shaped a little before adding it to the card, and the bow is from Lovely Laurels. To finish it off, I added a Tiny Tag and snipped off the corners of the base card, before adding some WOS glitter brush to the flower.

I can't wait to see what everyone has come up with this month.


I'd like to play along with


Addicted to Stamps and More - anything goes

Die Cutting Divas - something from the garden

The Shabby Tea Room - welcome spring.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop
