Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

Today is the day of Papertrey Ink's April Blog Hop Challenge and this is the inspiration that Nichole Heady shared with us ...

Megan Carter
I've finally decided what style of cards I like making the most - fun, happy ones. And simple, of course. This is what I was inspired to make this afternoon ...


Mostly only die cuts on this one. Not sure I'm thrilled about it, but it will do. I had problems getting motivated to make something for this challenge. I wasted a lot of time thinking about how much I would adore having a stamp exactly like those grey bell shaped flowers in the photo. :) Tried to come up with a hack for Bells & Boughs but it just wasn't working for me. Tulip Time wouldn't cooperate either. Yes, I told you I wasted a lot of energy. :)

Stamps: PTI Inspired: Love and Wonderful Words: Love, Make It Market Color Pop Florals. Dies: PTI Notched Flowers, Happiness in Bloom Leaves, Make It Market Color Pop Florals and a heart from Flipping Out.
