PTI August Blog Hop


As soon as I saw the August inspiration over at the Papertrey Ink blog a while back, I knew I had to join in the fun.  The inspiration pictures were so rich and beautiful.



I used my lovely Life is Sweet set along with Library Card to create mine.  I used the colors and attempted to get the textures that I associate with the inspiration.  I wanted a weathered and rough feel to my card, so I crumpled my cardstock and then ran the ink pad over the top.  I love that look.


Make sure you head over to the PTI blog to see all of the fun and participate!

Here are the links to the supplies I used:
