Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

Hello!

I thought I wasn't going to have time to enter the PTI Blog Hop this month, but then I found myself with an hour "spare" in between swimming lessons, vet visits, and ballet lessons... yippee!! I quickly did a google search on "embroidery" and found a lovely piece that inspired me immediately. Actually, I found two, but I only have time to make one card. ;-)

This is my card.
I used PTI Doodlie-Do stamps. Colours are SU! Night of Navy, Real Red, Daffodil Delight. That strip on the side is actually navy, not black.

The inspiration I used was this lovely handbag, which I found at Harujion Design.
This is the PTI inspiration board.
And just before I go, here is a photo of my Penny in all her colourful glory.
Thanks for visiting... now, back to the crazy Saturday kid-taxi schedule... ;-)

So glad you were able to make a card. That purse is so awesome, and so is the card you made. That Doodlie Do set is really great for this challenge, although it was not one I thought of right off the bat. But those images are so detailed and pretty, and I love your color choices.
