PTI June Blog Hop

Hello and happy Monday! Hoping your weekend was great. This is my very first time participating in a PTI blog hop but this inspiration photo and colors were just so too good to pass up 🙂 I must say that this card ended up in a very different place than the design originally in mind but I made my mistakes work and am still happy with the card that resulted.

Most of the papers and embellishments on here are scraps from off my desk and I just could not get the box pleats to work at all so went with a scalloped border instead. Will be on the lookout for any tips on pleating paper! Also pulled the gray from the photo and added just a touch of orange since those little butterflies where already stamped and looked so cute added in!

And here is the original inspo piece. View all the entries in the hop here.

In other news, we visited the Science Center for the first time this weekend – really fun even though the kids are just a little too young to fully enjoy and understand everything they were discussing during the programs and experiments.

And I also made it to 27 weeks! Its getting a bit uncomfortable and things like bending over and picking up little ones are awkward but I have a feeling the rest of the time is going to fly by. Crossing fingers at least ♥

  1. Awesome card for the hop! I love all of your cool elements that you have going on, like the layered scallops with jumbo ric-rac, the sun rays with the clouds and the fun stamped sentiment on the polka dots!

  2. Welcome to the hop, Sabrina! I love your take on the inspiration photo! Your card is fabulous– I especially love how you stamped the sentiment on patterned paper and layered it over the clouds and sun!
