Papertrey Ink Lovely Laurels card for blog hop






Hello everyone, and a very Happy Easter to you. We are having lovely weather today and all the spring bulbs are blooming beautifully in the garden, so it really is a happy day! I don't know about you, but spring is my favourite season - full of hope and new life after the long winter, and if you are lucky enough to have a garden or be near the countryside or even a park, you see something new and beautiful every day. Another reason it's a happy day is that it is also the day for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, and this time Nichole gave us this image for inspiration

Blog hop inspiration 5

I immediately thought of the Lovely Laurels stamp set and came up with this card. I used one of the papers that came in the kit and stamped and die cut the laurel wreath, bird and some flower sprigs to layer on it.


I used a Simon Says Stamp frame die to provide the background and then tilted the centre panel, added a bow, and finished off with some pen stitching.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

I'd like to also play along with 




Thanks for stopping by

PS hope you get lots of chocolate!

This is really lovely Carol, great colours and the stitching is perfect. There is most certainly plenty of life popping up in my garden, it's glorious today. Have a lovely weekend xx

This is beautiful Carol! I always love the PTI projects! I get very envious when I see amazing projects like this, as I love all the PTI stamps & IP, but their shipping is prohibitively high, and coupled with our crippling duty, tax and Royal Mail 'handling charges', makes each item around 3x the original cost! Have a very lovely Easter weekend! Hazel xx
