Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

Hello!

I've organised myself enough to join the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop again this month, yippee!  This is the lovely inspiration.
As soon as I saw this picture, I saw the fabric second from bottom. I have a pair of pyjamas in that fabric, and they're my favourite! :-)  (You really wanted to know that, didn't you?)  I would love to own this pile of fabric. I think I'd make a quilt out of it... I might need to give it to my girls, I'm not sure the hubby would want pink flowers in our bedroom, LOL!

Okay, so my mind went round and round with these types of thoughts, and when I sat down to make my card, I couldn't decide on just one fabric to use, I had to make a bunch of them, just like in the picture.
For this card, I used PTI Rosie Posie, Pretty Peonies, Background Basics: Circles, Think Big Favorites #13, and Hero Arts Zig Zag. Card base is PTI basic white. Blue card is SU! Pool Party. Ink is SU! Pretty In Pink, Cameo Coral, Poppy Parade, Bashful Blue, Pool Party, Certainly Celery, Old Olive. Ribbons are SU! Everyday Enchantment in Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Lucky Limeade. Brad is Everyday Enchantments. 

Wow! That's a lot for one little card!

I'll be back in the morning to link this up to the blog hop. Unfortunately the Blog Hop goes live around midnight for us here on the east coast of Australia. I plan to be well and truly asleep by then. :-)

Thanks for dropping by to visit. Leave me a comment and I will be back to visit you as soon as I can!
