August Papertrey Blog Hop!!!

***For my Market Street Stamps new release post CLICK HERE***


I'm a bit late to the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop party but I made it!  I just couldn't pass up that GORGEOUS inspiration photo and a chance to use my new Bloom Builder #3 Die.  I sponged Victorian Velvet Distress Ink to the edges of my Damask pattern paper and roughed up the edges with my fingernail.  My TANL leaf die was distressed a bit by running it through my Big Shot with the Linen IP.


 
I'm sorry but I can't stop using my pattern paper from MME.  This time---Lost and Found Two: Blush.
Everything coordinates beautifully and really takes the guess work out of using pattern paper.  My card also uses another Viva la Verve sketch for August (week 2) .......I'm challenging myself to try them all this month!
I did change the orientation of this sketch from vertical to horizontal as it fit better for my card elements. 



Thanks so much for stopping by!~
