papertrey ink blog hop...

I'm in card-making mode this month, what with The Daily Marker coloring challenge going on all month, so contrary to what I usually do, where I just bookmark the inspiration photos to my desktop and never do anything more with them, I actually made a card this month so I could participate in the monthly blog hop going on today with Papertrey Ink!  (My English teacher always red-inked my papers for run-on sentences, but I really don't know what the big deal is...I rather like them actually, and it's how I talk anyway, so...)

Here are the month's inspiration for the blog hop....some gorgeous prints by Victoria Johnson.


And here's the card I made inspired by these prints:

I used the Papertrey Ink Tropics stamp set and heat embossed with a variety of colored embossing powders I've had since Washington was a lad.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!

  6. This is so cool, just love how you used the Tropics stamps with embossing powders! I don't know if it was intentional or not, but to me the gold leaf mimics the bird...
