Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

Saturday, April 25, 2015

Hello! I have a very feminine card to share with you today for the PTI Blog Hop. I LOVE the inspiration photo this month!! The color combination is so striking, and I love all the different textures as well. I also am a big fan of stripes combined with florals, so I knew I had to use that in my card.

I used Background Basics: Super stripes to make the angled stripes in the background. I made sure to use the same angle as the birthday sentiment. The main flowers are popped up with foam tape, and a few sequins give it a special, shiny touch!

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Stamps: PTI - Ruby Rose, Background Basics: Super Stripes
Cardstock: PTI - White; Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy
Dies: PTI - Ruby Rose
