The theme for this month is scallops - any kind, any way. I have used tiered scallops like this in the past and love the look. So earlier this week when I was putting up window treatments in my new craft room (!!!!!) I realized how cute a card could be with the same tied up "poufs"!
Then I had to decide on stamps - that turned out to be easy as my Papertrey order came in the mail yesterday and included these two little sets. Both are so cute. The sentiment comes from a mini set of three big sayings, the other two being "Make a Wish" and "Thanks So Much". The set is labeled "#1" so I am hoping for more. The stem and leaves comes from a mini set that also includes a couple of cute flowers and four sentiments. I ended up not using the stamped flower because I thought I needed a little more dimension up there to balance the bows.
The colors were also easy. I wanted to use Kraft and ANY color looks good with Kraft; in fact, I think most colors look brighter and richer against Kraft. I have one plea if anybody official from PTI is reading this - Kraft ribbon and buttons??? What do you think??
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your blog hop. I'm off now to refresh my cup of coffee and then enjoy my hopping time!
