PTI - April Blog Hop

For the month of April the PTI  focus  is on fun florals, damasks & polka dots and a fun color scheme.  The inspiration piece's color scheme, pink roses, daisies and a few of the pattern combinations inspired my creation.

You can join in today here:

My Card~
Cardstock:  Base card is Stamper's Select from PTI;  Patterned papers "Raspberry Fizz Mix" from PTI; Damask pattern is from Gartner; Aqua stripe is from Me&My Big Ideas paper pad

Stamps: Emily Rose Bouquet from Stampendous
Ink:  Sepia from Ranger; Decorating Chalks used to color in the flowers and leaves
Yellow and Lime Green glitter from Stickles

Hope you all enjoy the creative inspiration, I know I will be back to check out the beautiful posts throughout the day.  

PS:  Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I find the "new" changes to Blog Spot a challenge sometimes :( 
When do they make these changes? In the middle of the night?

Not being the most techy person out here, it took me quite a while to post this and  I sure hope the comment double password thingy is NOT on, please let me know and I will try to turn that off.
