PTI February Blog Hop



I love Blog Hop time! For this month, the theme is Design Team Appreciation! I chose a card by one of the newest design team member's, Erin Lincoln , as my inspiration.



The moment I saw this card, my jaw dropped and I knew that I would have to try my hand at making it my own!



I decided to stamp the buttons in blues/greens, using Enchanted Evening, Ocean Tides and Aqua Mist. Instead of masking a center oval as Erin did, I stamped a separate oval and layered it onto a scalloped oval.

What a fun idea for a theme, tonight! I can't wait to see what everyone was inspired by and what how their projects turned out! Thanks for coming by!
