PTI August Blog Hop: Autumn Theme
Blog Hop time again -- Woo-Hoo!!! This month Nichole challenged us to create an autumn-themed project for Papertrey Ink's August Blog Hop. One of her suggestions was to use fabric on your creation . . . let's just say I tried, but failed miserably! So I went back to an idea that had struck me the first time I saw PTI's Everyday Classics Anniversary Set. I created my card based on the stamped flourish, to which I then added a sliver of Dark Chocolate card stock for a "wooden shelf" to hold my teapot. Seed beads sewn to my lace trim added the final detail. I can think of many ways to use this little "shelf" for other projects! Okay, I'm off to see all the wonderous projects all you hoppers created!
