PTI April Blog Hop

Hi there dear friends!! I hope all is well with you!!  I have been under the weather over the past couple of days so I am late with this post, but hopefully I am finally on the mend!! I'm hoping my backache and headache go away and that I will be able to sleep tonight!  That will help tremendously!!  I did take some time late this afternoon to enjoy some scrap therapy and made a quick little card focused on the PTI April Blog Hop.  Here's the deets:

Welcome everyone to the April Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge...
The-Challenge
Blog hop inspiration

We are excited to get back to our inspiration challenges for the blog hop each month.  For the month of April we wanted to focus on fun florals, damasks & polka dots.  Throw in the fun color scheme, and you have a recipe for the perfect project.  Use the inspiration piece as a jumping point for your color scheme, pattern combinations, overall design or whatever else inspires your creativity.

and here's my take on the challenge:
I used PTI's new Trendy Trees dies and Pink Paislee's London Market 6x6 papers for this month's challenge.  I couldn't wait to play with these adorable trees!! They are one of my many favorites!!
I also used the butterflies from Sweet Spring and the bunny from Friendship Jar Spring Fillers to complete the sweet scene!  The sunbeams are from Nativity Silhouettes and the sentiment is from Year of Flowers Daffodils.  I love mixing and matching stamp sets!!!  It is so theraputic and fun!!
Supplies Used:
PTI Stamps: Sweet Spring, Friendship Jar Spring Fillers, Nativity Silhouettes, Year of Flowers Daffodils
PTI Dies: Heart Border Die, Trendy Trees
PTI Vintage Cream Cardstock
Pink Paislee London Market 6x6 Papers
Recollections Rose
Hand Dyed Seam Binding: MemrieMare

Thanks for stopping by!!
