PTI May Blog Hop
First, Happy Memorial Day! I hope all of my American friends are enjoying the first 'unofficial' day of summer. But mostly, I hope you're all remembering our service men and women today. I always think of my dad and what he went through in Korea. I thank God that we have people protecting us and pray that they will come home safely. Most of all, I think of all of those who have lost loved ones in the service. Saying thank you just seems so insignificant in comparison to their sacrifice.
Well, I'm so excited to be a part of Papertrey Ink's May blog hop! I've been wanting to do this the past couple of months and finally found some time to join in on the fun! This month's challenge was to incorporate yellow into a card. So, I used Lemon Tart mixed with Spring Moss. I love the softness of the two colors. The stamps are from the Beyond Basics border set and Mega Mixed Messages. I added a piece of vintage ric rac and some Zva flowers along with PTI buttons and twine. The inking was done with the new tea stain in Chamomile. I've been adding it to everything!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
