Good evening!!
It is late at night (or better early in the morning...lol) here in Athens and I'm still up so that I can participate in the April PTI blog hop this time!! Anyway it is the best time for me to create since inspiration comes easier at this time for me!! It's always been like this..... my mind is better working at night!!! hahaha
It is the first time I've ever participated in the monthly blog hop. Every time I have sooo many ideas about a project to meet the requirements, but when the day comes I never get around to create something.... as usual inspiration doesn't come when you mostly need it!! LOL... This time though I had time to create this card for my mother-in-law for mother's day which is just around the corner. The challenge this time was to use tissue paper, which is definitely one of the hottest trends at the moment.


So here is the card I made...



And here is a close up of one of the flowers with tissue paper.


I used a leaf stamp from turning a new leaf, one of my favorite stamp sets from PTI. The base is chocolate cardstock and I think it really helps the pink and yellows I used to pop!
It came out nicely I think....
Can't wait to share with everyone participating and hop around to visit everyone's blog!!! Inspiration will surely be flowing......
Thanks for visiting!!
