Papertrey Ink's May Blog Hop

I haven't done a Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge for ages, for no other reason than I don't generally get much crafting time during the weekday evenings and if the bloghop day is during the week, then I don't have the time to play. But this month it's on a Saturday, so I get a chance to play! YAY!!!

This month Nichole gave us a selection of colour combos to choose from and I chose this gorgeous bright pink one.

I also used Make It Monday's Challenge #117 to use paper piecing, Papertake Weekly's Challenge also to use paper piecing, Viva La Verve's Sketch #4 for May and A Passion for Papertrey's Challenge to be inspired by nature. Outside the front of my school are absolutely tons of brightly coloured tulips, which look so pretty every time I walk past them, so they were my inspiration for this card.

And here it finally is.


Stamps: Think Big Favorites #12, Friendship Jar Spring Fillers both from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Summer Sunrise, Ripe Avocado, Stampers Select White, 2008 & 2009 Bitty Dot Basics Patterned Papers, Pacific Vineyards Basics Patterned Papers, Raspberry Fizz Mix Basics Patterned Papers, Hibiscus Bursts Patterned Papers all  from Papertrey Ink

Inks: Hibiscus Burst (desperately need a new one as it's virtually run out!) from Papertrey Ink, Basic Black from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Large Scallop Border Die, Mega Gracious Vases Dies both from Papertrey Ink, Orange Baker's Twine from The Ribbon Reel

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
