Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop Challenge


Hello and welcome!  Today is the Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop and whether your going along with the hop or you've just stopped by, I'm glad you're here. 
This month for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge we were given the photo above as inspiration to create a card or project.  When I first saw this photo my head was swimming in different directions as far as how to start my card, but in the end I pulling two of the colors from the photo and focused on the cute little pair of boots sitting on the bench.  If you look close you can see that the boots are pink with roses and green leaves along the side.  To imitate the roses with leaves I used the PTI stamp set Blooming Button Bits along with the Beautiful Blooms die, the Mat Stack 3 die, Picket Fence die and Tiny Tags die.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Awesome awesome card! I saw those boots right away, too, and could not think of a way I wanted to feature them. I should have called YOU! Your layout and the popping colors are fabulous.
