...Smiles Begin with YOU.



 
It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. This month is a color inspiration photo. Lots of pretty pastels that I don't usually use. :) I had grand plans for a mini album but an unwanted visitor to my office/craft space changed my plans.  Does the phrase "There's a snake in my boot OFFICE!" conjure up any visions? Thankfully my son found him and convinced him to leave the house. 


I started my card by creating pattern paper using the Natural Beauties stamp set in the colors of the inspiration photo. I LOVE the top flower all by its self.

The base is Harvest Gold card stock impressed with the Diamonds plate.

I used the Perfect Patches die to cut out my newly created pattern paper and tied it all up with a Summer Sunrise twill tape ribbon.


I created the display stand for PTI's Stamp-a-faire and have a couple of extras that I'm giving away on my previous post if you are interested. 



Happy Hopping Everyone! ~Rhonda
