Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop

I. Made. A. Card.

Oh my.... I have so shamefully neglected my stamps and paper and ink for QUITE some time! It was a rough couple of semesters! But I've found some crafting time lately, and so happy to jump back in with a card for the May Blog Hop for PTI! The theme is "aqua and melon". OK, so I took some liberty with that and used Hawaiian Shores and Berry Sorbet... I think they are close enough! :)

I used dies from the newest Make it Market Kit (Sprinkles), but instead of making a shaker box, I just love these dies just for a great focal point/frame! I used the flowers and "SMILE" from Reasons to Smile (the limited edition set from last year's Stamp A Faire), and a butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies. The tag in the corner is from Framed Out #7.





The whole focal point is adhered on foam tape for added dimension.



Thanks for stopping by my blog! Be sure to hop around to all the entries in the PTI Blog Hop! Have a great day... and I promise to post again in less than 10 months this time! ;) lol!

So, Debbie--nice to see you. It's been a long time. I still always think of your cards whenever I see Hawaiian and Orange together--btw--you should check out Tropical Teal--it just screams your name. Anyway, back to your fabulous card. I just love it.
