Papertrey June Blog Hop challenge!!


This month's Papertrey Blog hop challenge was a fun one!

"This month we thought it would be fun to focus on COLOR! We want to see your favorite Papertrey
color schemes put to work. Be sure to post the color scheme near the top of your post in bold letters so
everyone can collect them to use as a future reference! With everyone's different takes on
combinations from the Papertrey spectrum, we will surely build an amazing resource that we can all
utilize and fall in love with some new favorite color schemes! 

One of my favorite color combinations of all time is this:


I have been secretly wishing that PTI would come out with a stamp set that coordinates with the scallop dies sooo bad!  So, I thought I would look through what stamps I did have that might fit in the scallops.  I realized that my brand new set All About You has circles that are almost perfect for the medium scallop die!!  Take a look at my dotted scallop border I created!!  Ohhh, I am in heaven!!


Some other things that I tried for this card were coloring the rhinestones to match the Plum Pudding color, cutting out all those leaves and the flower (I don't do this very often at all), using my new impression plates for the background papers, and my new Plum Pudding pigment ink. 


{Happy Birthday to YOU}
All supplies PTI unless stated.
Stamps:  All About You
Paper:  Plum Pudding, Ripe Avocado, Rustic white
Ink:  Plum Pudding, Ripe Avocado, Close to Cocoa (SU)
Misc:  Linen and Canvas impression plate, medium scallop border die, pop dots, Spring Moss saddlestitch ribbon,
Bow-Easy, Corner Rounder (CM)
