Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

Good evening!! It is hard to believe that it is time for another blog hop.





After seeing Nichole's clear cardstock card and a few others, I have been wanting to make one myself. This is what I came up with. Of course like everyone else I had to use the new Hawaiian Shores CS and Dawn's new set Delghtful Dahlia. I cut them out with the die cuts and embossed them with Filligree gold embossing powder. The picture doesn't seem to show how much shine there is to it. I also used the Botanicals BG set on my Dark Chocolate CS.

Here is the inside of the card.



I actually made this for my SIL who is going in for back surgery and I wanted to send her something since she will be down for quite some time.
I thought I would show you the inspiration for my card. I made her a lap quilt and couldn't believe some of the material that was in it was a match to Hawaiian Shores and Delightful Dahlia. I even made a label for the back of the quilt using Dawn's set. I have sewn it on yet because I still need to personalize it.
Have fun tonight blog hopping. I know I will. I love seeing what everyone has done.
I also wanted to thank everyone that has stopped by my blog and left such wonderful comments.
