March PTI Blog Hop!


Our challenge this month on the PTI blog hop was to design our own background pattern and then use it in a project. Here is my background using the anniversary set, Everday Classics (although I forgot to take a photo with the full sheet, I did have a bit left after making my cards).

Here is the first card I created, a wedding/love card

and the second is a birthday card

Here is a closer view to the front


Thanks for taking a look!
Melissa
