Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop


This month for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop the theme is to include "diagonals" into your project design.  Such a fun idea!

I had to make a card with the Birthday Style balloons since I didn't get to use them for a hop yet!


I incorporated a diagonal into my sketch and made a simple little card with lots of fun patterns and colors...even with some diagonal chevrons in the clouds and balloons!  I used papers from DCWV "Sunday Afternoon" Collection, and Simple Stories "Vintage Flair" Collection.


The balloons were cut with the Birthday Style dies and the sentiment is from Think Big Favorites #1.  I Thinking like Maile...I added little epoxy dots that were from a different collection but just happened to be the right colors and have chevron and dotted patterns on them!

A simple, cheerful card today...thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Birthday Style, Think Big Favorites #1, Papertrey Ink
Paper:  DCWV "Sunday Afternoon," Simple Stories "Vintage Flair", PTI White and Berry Sorbet cardstock
Ink:  Fresh Ink in Pink Grapefruit, Memento Gray Flannel
Other:  Birthday Style balloon die, white ribbon, Heidi Grace epoxy dots

You are brilliant--how you used all those different papers to come up with a card that is not too overwhelming--you need to give lessons. Your card works so perfectly well.
