Hello again! I'm so excited you've come to visit. Today was another great day - Regan D'Agostino , a fellow PTI addict and a writer for Inspirational, a blog that features unique crafts, emailed to ask permission to feature my PTI blog hop entry on their site. Of course I said (screamed?) yes. Yes! Yes! Yes!
So that's been p-r-e-t-t-y cool. I'd not seen Inspirational's site before, but now I'm completely hooked. There's everything on there...great scrapbooking layouts, unique cards, unusual 'ingredients'...it's a fabulous place to go for inspiration as well as to find other crafters out there. And guess what? My card is right below one from Melissa Bickford! As in the Melissa Bickford from Papertrey whose blog I visit every day! I got so excited that I actually have a headache.
Now on to today's card!
My inspiration came when my newest Papertrey order arrived today. Ummm, yes, I do tend to spend a large portion of my crafting budget there, don't I? Well on my latest order was a jar of celadon Prima deux blossoms. I figured that since they're green they could be 'leaves' too. And hence the wreath. I started with a card base of Papertrey's white, then layered on some spring moss and a layer of aqua mist that I ran through my Big Kick with my swiss dots Cuttlebug folder. I'm still trying to dig out supplies that I've unnecessarily hoarded, thus the cute pearl beads that I bought from Ellen Hutson. I wrapped the aqua layer in sweet blush satin ribbon and attached my sentiment tag. I dug that tag out of an old box, too...it's from way back in the day before I started using die-cut machines. It was perforated so I sanded off the perforation bumps and used linen thread to attach it to the ribbon. I hope you like the card as much as I do. Phew. A long post for a great day!
Until next time...M
