PTI September Blog Hop


This month's challenge was this inspiration photo:

Inspiration photo challenges are not my favorite, but I saw the bold colors and lines and graphics and thought I could do this one.  So I came up with this:

I trimmed an inch off the right side of the card base, then cut strips of cardstock to match the colors in the photo. I die-cut matching leaf borders to attach on top.  The sentiment with matching addition and bow with hearts finish it off!

Off you go on the rest of the hop, check out Nichole's blog for more participants and inspiration!  Thanks for stopping by.
