Better Late Than Never--April PTI Blog Hop


So . . . I made a card last week for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  And . . . I completely forgot about it!  Yay me!  ;-D  So, I hopped around this morning, commenting on the fabulous cards fellow PTI fans posted, then I rushed home after work to quickly photograph my card and put it up before the deadline!  Or I would have  if there hadn't been a giant traffic tie up on the freeway!!  Man . . . some days you realize you just should have stayed in bed, huh?  :-D  But I still made the deadline--whew!  Here is the dreamy inspiration photo for April:
And here is my boring, run-of-the-mill, you ain't seeing nothin' new card:

Now, I'm not putting myself down, I'm just being honest.  Sometimes I hit it out of the ball park, and this is not one of those times, LOL!  But it's a perfectly good card and was inspired by the photo.  What I saw when I looked at the picture was Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst, and white.  (And florals, damasks, polka dots, and stripes.)  And I have someone in mind for this thank you card, so it's all good! 

If you've stopped by here this LATE in the blog hop, and read all the way to the end of the post . . . thank YOU, and have a great evening!

WOW, Even though I own this stamp set I could never create anything good with it, but your card has totally inspired me. Loved the paper piercing, the patterned paper on the sides. WOW..Really good. I liked it.
