PTI Blog Hop



Evening! Its 9.00PM for me in Australia. Today has been a very busy day for me. No breakfast or lunch but able to cook a hearty dinner and ate it too :) I am finally able to sit down and write up my blog hop post. This month's blog hop has another inspirational photo. Here is the photo for you.

 For me, what stood out in the photo was the colors, flowers, the design of the suitcase lid and the splash of grey or blue??? Although, I see the jar and the books, I chose to ignore them as I don't have jar or book stamps :( Anyway, I focussed on the colors  and here is my card inspired by the photo.


I have used PTI's cardstocks, stamps, ribbon, button and dies. The pattern paper is from Kaisercraft and so are the flower diecut stickers. The texture plates are from Craft Concepts and finally ink is Crumb Cake from SU.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Hopping!

 Good Night :)

Beautiful card! I love how you say "well, I did see those elements but had to ignore them". I guess that is true for inspiration; not everything that inspires you is achievable.
