Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop.

Hi all.  Thought I’d have a go at participating in the PTI blog hop this month – never done it before so have no idea if I’m doing any of it right, lol.  The challenge is to use tissue on your project so I (being of very few original ideas) have done a tissue flower.  You can’t tell but I stamped polka dots on the tissue in Fresh Snow before punching all the layers out with a scallop circle punch.  Then I scrumpled them all up, touched the edges up with Berry Sorbet ink and stitched a button from the Fresh Snow collection in the middle.  The papers are from Pink Patterns and I’ve used a wee bit of Spring Moss twill tape.  The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages.

I am also entering this card over the current Passion For Papertrey challenge which is “pretty petals”.  Hope this qualifies as it’s not a stamped flower!!  It’s all PTI though.
Right, well hope I’ve posted this at the right time etc.  Off to check out what else is floating around blogland tonight.
