Hey, everyone! Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons, and the Pink by Design Spring Inspiration Blog Hop. If you are coming from Pink by Design, you are in the right place. If you've just stumbled upon my post, then I'd love it if you'd start at the beginning, HERE.
This month's Pink by Design Blog Hop/Challenge has a Spring Theme and an inspiration photo. You can enjoy all of the AWESOME projects in the hop, then you can go create your own project based on the photo and link it up at Pink by Design. Sarah has something special for one lucky linker. :) Here's my card and the inspirational photo behind it:
I took my inspiration from the pennant banners, umbrella, and colors from the photo. I got the bird and umbrella from the Lettering Delights Cloud Nine SVG Set, and I cut them using my Silhouette Cameo.
The beautiful banners are actually stamps from the Pink by Design Small Banners Stamp Set. I stamped the banners on different patterns of cardstock, trimmed them with my scissors, punched small holes in the top corners, and threaded them onto some Brown Sugar Divine Twine that I purchased from the Pink by Design Store.
Here's a better look at the inside. You can see that I created the front of the card by cutting the square front in half diagonally. The sentiment on the card came from Pink by Design's Hoppy Easter Stamp Set. I've used this one so much lately...I just LOVE it!
