Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop

Hi there dear friends!!  I'm so excited to have a little time to join in on the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!!
Here's the challenge:
We have another amazing inspirational photo for you this month that we just know will bring out the very best in your creativity!  Look closely and there are so many directions to go in!  You can choose to focus on the colors, the stripes, or the repetition.  We look forward to seeing your creations!

and here's my take on the challenge:
I chose to work with color repetition in my card.  I used PTI's Background Basics Hearts and used Clearsnap's Cats Eyes ink for the background.  It's been quite a while since I played with my Little Bitty Birds Stamps and I thought this would be the perfect time to blow the dust off them and I'm glad I did!  These little birdies remain one of my very favorite PTI stamp sets!!  They are the cutest!
Since my background was fairly busy, I decided to cut out the branch using my Cricut and the Serenade Cartridge rather than stamp the branch.  It worked out perfectly!  I used the sentiment from Happy Trails and my card was complete!

Supplies used:
Papertrey Ink Paper: Stampers Select White Cardstock and Pure Poppy Cardstock
Papertrey Ink stamps:  Background Basics Hearts, Little Bitty Bird, Love Birds, Happy Trails
Clearsnap Cats Eyes Inks
Copic Markers:  R29 Lipstick Red, R24 Prawn, B24 Sky, and B21 Baby Blue
Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup Home Made 6 Bean Soup 6x6 Pad

Thanks for stopping by!!
I hope you have a fabulous week!!
