Papertrey Paper Dolls Blog Hop Challenge
Looking back, I *think* the first challenge I ever entered was one from the Papertrey Paper Dolls--one of the supportive blog commenting/challenge groups that have sprung up on the PTI forum. I joined the Pixies when it was formed, but that group has unfortunately fizzled out, so I leaped at the chance to join the Post-Its, which is proving to be a wonderful experience! Anyway, I have kept a sweet spot in my heart for the Dolls, and so I wanted to be sure to participate in their first blog hop and blog hop challenge! (Info here, go check it out! Lots of VERY talented ladies!)
The challenge is to use items for/on your card that begin with "P," "T," and "I" to honor the PTI stamp company that brought them all together. Fun idea, huh? The Dolls are coming up on a year together, as well as welcoming some new members, so I made them a card celebrating that! For my card, I used: P = paper (hee!), pennants, purple, polka dots, and presents; T = twine, both baker's and jute-style; and I = impression plate (linen on the solid purple layer, doesn't show up at all (!), and ink: stamp ink, shading ink, and the white ink I used to color in the flowers on the kraft layer.
Ta da! Congrats on your first happy year, Paper Dolls, and may you look forward to many more!
