January PTI Blog Hop

bloghoplogo

Hello fellow hoppers!

Our theme this month was to use a stamp set that had not yet been used, or something that was gathering dust. I don't have any sets that are unused, but I pulled out an old favorite that hadn't been used in a while, Baby Button Bits.

It's funny...I had two patterned paper layers ready to adhere onto my card base, and as I was sewing them the focal layer was on top of the base and I loved the way it looked! So I went with it...and now I have a clean and simple card!

The cupcake is paper pieced with some My Mind's Eye papers, onto which I added a button tied with silk ribbon. The sentiment is from Enjoy the Ride.

Sorry for the dark pictures, I couldn't get them to look any better in Photoshop.

Thanks for coming by!
Melissa
