Blog Hopping with PTI: The Total Package

Well, it's Blog Hop time at Papertrey Ink. The challenge this month was to create a card with the "total package." Meaning, don't neglect the inside of the card or the envelope (like I always do). So, once again, while this probably isn't too much of a challenge for some people, I was definitely working outside of my comfort zone.

I knew I wanted to make something cheery. I know it's not even February yet, but I'm ready for spring and flowers and cheery colors to flood the scene! So I tried to get some of that onto my card (and envelope) today.







That's all for me today. If you're on the hop, I can't wait to see what you've done as well. If you're just here visiting, hope your day is cheery!

Stamps: PTI Friends 'Til The End
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, Versamark
CS: PTI Dark Chocolate, Hibiscus Burst, Plum Pudding, Spring Moss, Summer Sunrise, White
Accessories: Filigree White Embossing Powder, SU Scallop Trim Punch, PTI Dark Chocolate Buttons

Susan (peebsmama) said...

I love the extra large flowers and your color combo. This is really a "wow". You did a great job decorating the inside too. I usally do a little something besides a sentiment, like a strip of the same patterned paper that I use on the front or a simple stamped image, but never anything as gorgeous as what you did.
