Go To Gals and Friends Blog Hop

Hi! I'm so excited to be participating in today's blog hop. I was so excited when my sweet friend Jessica Witty asked me to participate. (Have I told you how much I love this girl? We just laugh and laugh when we're together...)

Anyway, as you know, Paper Crafts is celebrating the release of Go To Sketches this week.



All of the Go to Gals picked 5 friends to create a card for the Blog Hop. We all made something based on this sketch. (Which, by the way was created by none other than the talented Jessica!)



Anyway, here is my take.





I pulled the colors from the gorgeous Studio Calico paper. I've been waiting to use this sheet and thought this would be the perfect card for it. Spring Rain, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart and Vintage Cream just scream spring to me.

I used Papertrey Ink's Blooming Button Bits, and Background Basics Tin Types. I stamped with Spring Rain and Smoky Shadow inks and used some Lemon Tart buttons along with some Spring Moss satin dot ribbon. The yellow panel was cut with the Fillable Frames #1 die.

Paper Crafts will be choosing random commenters from the blogs to receive a complimentary issue of Go To Sketches. :)

You can hop on over to Jessica's other friends to see what they did with the sketch:
