Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - April

Sunday, April 25, 2010

Hello! Thanks for stopping by for the Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop! I will admit that I totally forgot about this until the reminder popped up on my calendar this morning. I was reminded why exactly I don't scrap on weekends-- because the kids are home! Not that I don't enjoy doing creative things with my kids, because I do. But it is difficult to work beside them when they are asking me a million questions and asking me how to do stuff. It's easier when I'm not working on my own thing.


Anyway, here is my card! This month's challenge was to use tissue paper on your card. I'd really have liked to do something out of the box and totally creative with tissue paper, but I just didn't have the time or energy today. So, I just made these cute little flowers using dies, tissue paper and a little sponging of pink ink.
I used about 18 layers of tissue for the center flower and 12 for the smaller ones. They all stay together using a mini brown brad.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my Blog Hop card. Have a great day!


{Happy Birthday}

That's very pretty, I think the number of layers you used for your flowers gives them such great dimension. Pretty layout too.
