Papertrey February Blog Hop!

Good evening!! Thank you for stopping by tonight and having a look at my creation. It is hard to believe that it is time for another blog hop!


It was so hard to pick any certain designer as an inspiration. They are all so fabulous and so much creativity. Thank you Ladies for all that you do and all of the inspiration that you give!!! Seeing your wonderful creations makes me the motivation that I need to get started.
I chose tonight to use one of Dawn McVey's cards that she did for this month's release. I decided to rotate it and used a different color scheme. It is a simple card but that is good sometimes, right?
I have been gone for most of the month and haven't had much time to create so I needed a simple and quick card. I also needed a few thank you cards and thought this was a perfect card for that.




This card measures 7x3 which is different than what I usually do and wanted to give a different size a try.
Before I go I would like to wish my granddaughter a Happy 1st Birthday. Happy Birthday M. Love and miss you!!
Supplies:
Stamps: Background Basics: Text Style, Around and About Sentiments
Paper: Raspberry Fizz, Vintage Cream
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, New Leaf, Vintage Cream
Accessories: New Leaf Satin Ribbon, EK Success border punch, Recollections Pearl Stickers, SU! Round punches
Have a wonderful time hopping around to everyone's blog. I know I will and am excited to see what everyone has done and see which designer you chose.

Oh your card is just lovely. I love the border punch that you used. I have looked and looked at that punch so many times--even had it in my cart but I have yet to purchase it. I guess I will be going to JoAnn Fabrics in the morning. (if the weather allows) You did an awsome job with this challenge!!
PS Happy Birthday to your little granddaughter!! That age is so special :)
