I am playing along today with the August Blog Hop for Papertrey Ink.
The challenge this month was to create a card using the following photo as inspiration.
And here is my card:
On the message board, there's been talk of seller's regret as in when you sell PTI goodies to another forum member and then scheme up a project for which the sold set or die would work perfectly. This photo made me sad that I recently sold my Friendship Jar and die set- twice. Yep- sold it, re purchased it and sold it again.... Never used, nope, not sure what my problem is....
Anyway, I needed to take another approach to this photo, so I decided to focus on the colors and patterns. I stamped the top 2/3 of the card with a text stamp and the bottom third with gingham- a nod to the pretty dress the picnic-er is wearing in the background. I added foliage to the card using the leaves and berries from the new Harvest Berries set. The sentiment is also from Harvest Berries stamped on Mat Stack 1 and inked with the Tea Dye duo.
Check out Nichole Heady's blog for all the deets and to add your own project to the hop. Looking forward to seeing everyone's beautiful creations.
Thanks for stopping by!
