PTI March Blog Hop

Hi there dear friends!!  It's been a while since I've posted but I haven't stopped creating!  I've been in the process of making some Wedding Invitations for a freind of my daughter and I have been participating in our Church's Newlywed and Couples Workshop.  I've really enjoyed sharing with young couples through this ministry and I can honestly say that it has only improved my own marriage!!  I'm loving it!!  I've had a break from those activities this week and I made a card for the PTI March Blog Hop!!  HooRay!!  I needed some crafty time!!

Here's the challenge:

March 2013 Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the March 2013 Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge...
The-Challenge
  March-blog-hop-inspiration
Sequins are popping up everywhere on paper crafting projects and now's your chance to try out this new trend!  With the variety of colors and shapes available, the sky is the limit with the creative possibilities!  Use them to accent the centers of flowers, add them as borders, fill shakers, or create random splashes of sparkle.  We are looking forward to seeing your sequined creations!


and here's my take on the challenge:
I used the new Polka Dot Parade #2 flowers to showcase the sequins.  Who doesn't love some shiny little flowers? This time of the year, with spring flowers still a ways away, it's fun to add a little sparkle and color!!  I also used the brand new Spring Hills stamp set for this card.  I absolutely adore those sweet little sheep!



PTI Supplies Used:
Spring Hills Stamps
Polka Dot Parade #2 stamps
Loop De Loop Die
Tag Sale Dies
Sweet Blush Patterned Paper and Grosgrain Ribbon
Aqua Mist ink
Stamper's Select White Cardstock

Thanks for stopping by!!!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
Kristii
