February Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Hello! Tonight is the February Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. I'm so glad I came across a blog this morning reminding me about the hop. It's been a few months since I've been able to participate, simply because I forgot!


Anyhow, this month Nichole Heady asked us to check out the PTI design team gallery and pick a card to CASE. This is the card I picked, designed by Lisa Johnson.
I kept the layout pretty much the same since that was what really drew me to her card. Lisa used Polka Dot Basics and I used Text Style. Lisa and I both used Everyday Button Bits for our image and sentiment, we just used different ones. I wanted my card to have a masculine feel, so I left off the bow and centered the sentiment panel. I also used an oval for the image instead of a circle.
The sentiment strip I used actually has a curve to it. I used a foam dimensional in the center to achieve this. I hope you can see it in the above picture.
The patterned paper I used is from Basic Grey's Origins paper pad.

I hope you all are enjoying the hop! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
