Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

Hello!

I was sitting here, preparing for an early night to bed, when I remembered (with a little memory jog from my friend Cassie)... it's Papertrey Ink's June Blog Hop day! The timing of the hop meant that I either made a card tonight, or I miss the challenge.  So, off I toddled to my little stamping corner and whipped up a card. :-)

This is the inspiration this month.
Isn't it lovely? I didn't have enough time to make the ruffles this picture evoked for me, so I focused on that floral and leaf patterned cushion and the greenish/blue and yellow colour scheme. What colour is that green, anyway? Please, someone tell me it's name, I can't think of it. It's not really aqua (which is what I used), it's not really green, it's not teal, not really verdigris (is it?). I'm going to be dreaming bluey-green all night, LOL!

Here is my card.
I used Rosie Posie, Pretty Peonies, and Turning a New Leaf and stamped like crazy in SU! Pool Party and Daffodil Delight. My token ruffle comes from the pool party ribbon over a daffodil delight satin ribbon. Oh, I would like to take a moment at this time to thank PTI PROFUSELY for creating a die for that little frame from Pretty Peonies... no more fussy cutting this one for me!

I also had another challenge in mind when I created this card. I just saw over at Moxie Fab World that Cath is back. She's challenged us to make a Thank-You card where stamping is the star of the show for the Stamp It! Cards Thank-You Challenge.  Stamping is definitely star of show on this card. :-)

I'll be back to link this card in the morning when the Blog Hop will be well and truly up and running.

Thanks for dropping by!
