March Blog Hop!!



Well....here we go again... Paper Trey Blog hop time :) This Months challenge is to create your own background paper & then create a card/project with it. It was really fun creating the paper.....but I must admit...I had a hard time just cutting it up!! Did you???? I don't exactly love my card this time but really wanted to play along so going to post it anyway. For my background paper I used Raspberry fizz paper from PTI & night of navy ink from SU. I used the circle set & the around & about sentiments sets for my background stamps.


So this is the paper before I "cut it all up"





















Then this is the finished card! I realize the papers do not seam like the same color but it is just the lighting....my background paper would not fit into my little photo taking box!!




Well, that's it!!! hope this all works out with the time change & all....this is going to have to be "pre-posted" to go on at 3:30 Arizona time (when I am at work) Then have to somehow get to the PTI site (still at work) shhhhhhhhhhhh...don't tell!!!! ;) and post my link. So I can get to hopping as soon as I get home! I can not wait to see what everyone has created!!!! See ya! thanks for hopping by!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~Gwen~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think your card is awesome & very creative -- I love how your sentiment circle includes the pink flower gem, which just makes it all "pop"!!! This fits right into the "clean & simple" mode I seem to be engulfed in right now! I tried a complicated "plaid" male background, which just didn't work once I had it done, so...went with "clean & simple" on mine AGAIN!!! ;-)

I'm just now getting back to blog-hopping--it got too late for me on the 25th. I really love your card. I love the backgroud you created, your layout, the little tag--everything. It's clean and simple, but interesting at the same time--perfect!
