Welcome to the June Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  When I saw the photo for this month's inspiration, I knew right away I wanted to play along!

Jen Carter PTI June Peaches Thanks Closeup

There are flowers in the inspiration photo, but I thought immediately of the peaches in Betsy's new Make It Market Mini Kit.   I thought that their ripe, juicy color would be perfect for the colors in the photo.  


Aren't those shoes so cute?

Jen Carter PTI June Peaches Thanks

I used the Cover Plate: Stripes Horizontal die to cut the stripes.  It seemed like the perfect backdrop for the peaches.  I added in the "Thanks" die included in the kit and cut three of them to stack on top of each other.  I sprayed the top peach with a little glimmer mist and used a clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen on the peaches in a few key areas but it is hard to see in the photo.  To finish the card off, I added in a few dark gray enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by!
