June PTI Blog Hop



It's blog hop time again! And our challenge this month is to use our favorite color combo. I don't have just one, but I do love Hawaiian Shores and Lavendar Moon together.

When I saw this card I was blown away! Loved it so much that I was inspired to try several of the elements on my own card. I used the same Label 4 die, sponged the background and paper pieced the lilies. The card ends up looking a very different style though.
