PTI Blog Hop?

Ah, well, better late than never? :-D I made this card for PTI's January blog hop--where you were supposed to use a stamp set that had never seen ink, or hadn't seen it in a long while--and then completely forgot about it! So, I'm going through photos tonight and . . . there it was. Sigh. Hopefully, I'll be more on the ball in February! :-)

I chose the stamp set "All About You." I bought it when it was released and had yet to use it. I've used the "Additions" companion set, but just not this one. The choice wasn't easy as I had, ahem, quite a few uninked sets to choose from. :-) I'm not wild about the card, but I do like the colors, and I'm sure it will come in handy to perk up someone's day.

This is beautiful - love the soft colors and little details here/there (grouping of buttons, corner die cut, etc.). And it's never too late for a card - they can always be used!

I love the way you used the center panel to stamp your sentiment and some of the flowers. Very pretty. Are you looking forward to the Feb 25th Blog Hop too?

Very pretty colors and lovely lace to make your card with. I think we are all a bit 'overwhelmed' by all the challenges and info coming out of the PTI site.

I am glad you still posted your Hop card. It is gorgeous. I love the softness of the colors and that Nestie is such the perfect choice as it adds to the flow of this card perfectly. What a pretty bit of ?lace I see peeking out from below the focal point. Great touch.

Cute card, I love the grouping of buttons and the decorative strip in the middle.
