Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

I made this card for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. I didn't read the directions correctly and just realized that you are only eligible to win prizes if you are picked as one of twenty-five bloggers that are randomly chosen. Bummer! Oh well I had fun making this card even though it took a lot to get it where I thought it looked good. I wanted to go clean and simple because to me that is what PTI represents. That style is sometimes hard for me so this card was a challenge. I'm not sure if I am completely happy with it but it will have to do. I used the PTI patterned paper squares that Nichole proved for this challenge. I combined it with some PTI Moss card stock and the "Green Thumb" set. Accessories are SU taffeta ribbon and square punches. I also did some paper piercing for added texture. Although I wasn't picked to participate in this month's blog hop my dear friend Kirsten was. She made an awesome card with the new "Pond Life" set. You must check it out and vote for her on the PTI forum. Go Kirsten! That's all for today but I have a new card for you tomorrow. Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
