Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge


On this rainy old spring day I thought I would play along with PTI's April Blog Hop. Here is the pretty inspiration pattern...









I wanted to try out a new kit I recently bought, Color Pop Autumn, and even though it isn't spring themed, I really thought it went well with this inspiration pattern. I pulled out inks I thought would match: Soft Stone, Bright Buttercup, Orange Zest, and Pink Blush and played around with the stencils in this kit. I love how the images really pop on Fresh Snow Linen.




I added a die cut sentiment in Orange Zest and matted the linen base on Soft Stone. I love how it turned out! I think my dad will too. He always loves my cards.

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see all the pretty things along the hop.

The stenciling looks so pretty on the linen cardstock. Great take on the inspiration.
