February Blog Hop!



Hello all of you Blog Hoppers you! Welcome to my entry for Papertrey Ink's February Blog Hop entry. I used Polka Dot Basics, Simple Little Things (last year's anniversary set), Background Basics: Retro, and With Sympathy on this card. The flowers are stamped in Melon Berry ink and colored with a yellow Prismacolor pencil and mineral spirits. There's also a touch of glitter on each flower center. The focal image is mounted to the orangey cardstock layer using foam tape to give it a little more visual interest. Hope you enjoy my card and your night of hopping!



Recipe:
Cardstock: Lemon Tart - Papertrey Ink, Ultimate White - Strathmore; Orange - Bazzill
Stamps: Polka Dot Basics, Simple Little Things, Background Basics: Retro, With Sympathy - Papertrey Ink
Ink: Melon Berry - Papertrey Ink; Frost White - Colorbox, Versamark - Tsukineko
Ribbon: Spring Moss Saddle Stitched - Papertrey Ink
Tools: Medium and Small Corner Rounders - EK Success; Scalloped Border Punch - Fiskars, Paper Piercer
