Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge


Welcome to Papertrey Inks July Blog Hop!!  This month our challenge was to make a card based on the following inspiration photo:


Here's my card:


I took inspiration from the colors and also the flowers in one of the pillows and the stripes in the other pillow.  The butterfly was inspired by the butterflies on another pillow and also by the pattern in the afghan. 

 
I punched the butterfly out and then stamped Mehndi Medallion and Daydreamer images on it using the colors scheme from the photo.  I really love this look and need to do this again.

Amy Kolling, Laurie Willison and I are together for an impromptu Stamping Away "weekend"!  We are having a great time and the first thing we did was to each make a card for the PTI blog hop.  Laurie was kind enough to snap a shot of all 3 of our cards together.


It's cool to see them all lined up together!!  It was fun to see these all coming together and to see how we each interpreted the challenge in our own way!

Want to see where we are stamping?


This is in Laurie's brand new craft room!! It's gorgeous!!

Well, it's time to get back!  Thanks for stopping by today!  (I'll add the supplies for this card soon!)  If you'd like to see the rest of the participants, be sure to hop over to Nichole's blog here!
