Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge




Happy Saturday!  It's a gray and overcast day here.  You know, the kind that is perfect for stamping.  My daughter is still in her pajamas and happy to be coloring at the dining room table while Mommy crafts away. 

I saw the Papertrey Ink announcement about June's blog hop yesterday and planned to participate.  After I gave the challenge some thought, I remembered that I would need a birthday card for my Great Aunt's 90th birthday celebration tomorrow.  Instantly, I knew where I was going with this one!

I found a good sketch to use for my wreath and went to town!  This month's inspiration challenge comes from a photograph with a gorgeous gradient colored wall.  I pulled the kiwi and coral colors from the wall as my inspiration for my card. 

I hope you like it and I hope Aunt Irene likes it too!  We'll see tomorrow.  Have a joyful Saturday!

Details - Stamps: A Wreath For All Seasons (PTI); Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, SEI Mimosa dsp; Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Colorbox Coral Rose; Accessories: Nestabilities, May Arts Burlap String, white twill tape, M's silver pearls, corner chomper, stamping dimensionals, glue dot.
