Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


This month's blog hop theme at Papertrey Ink was to be inspired by this adorable inspiration photo...


I started off making a floral card, but something about those stripes made me want to get out my new "Guiding Lights" stamp set.  


I used the new dies and stamps to make a masculine birthday card that I need for the weekend.


Blended some Hero Arts Butter Bar (yellow) ink and some Tim Holtz Wild Honey to make the sky in the background.  The cardstock is embossed with a striped folder from Sizzix, and the stitched circle is cut with a die from Simon Says Stamp.

Can't wait to visit blogs for the hop, I loved this photo!
