July Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.



Talk about a crafty eleventh hour!  Don't look too closely or you might just spot some glue still drying!  Crazy days. Even though I know of the theme of PTI's next Blog Hop from the 15th of the month, I always seem to leave it to the last minute.  Incorrigible I know.  This little number was whipped up using the inspiration photo below.  It was one of those times where I had no idea what I was making until I was making it!  Do you know those times?  Only delectable Papertrey Ink goodies were used in the rather slapdash (but full of frenzied fun) making of this card.  Lots of yummy PTI dies and spritzing of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists were used (gee, the mists really didn't photograph well).  Being the aficionados that you are, I won't bore you with the supply details.  But, absolutely,  do let me know if you want to know anything further.    It would be my pleasure.  



So without further ado...my card made with only minutes to spare.  Whooooooey! *wipes brow*



Thanks a big bunch for hopping by!

Look at the cool layers...love the corrugated cardboard, you do wonders with that stuff! Love the fluffy scalloped borders, all frilly and fun. There you go showing your Mod Distressed style that is so cool! And all whipped up at the last minute? No fair! This would take me 3 days to even THINK of let alone create, Jen ;)

Great layers adnd paper choices. The aqua ribbon and bow and the orange button are such pretty additions. I've lost my crafty mojo this week and totally missed the PTI Blog Hop. Lots of inspiration here!

I can't believe you just 'whiped this up' Jen! It's drop dead gorgeous. I especially like the butterfly/doily/trail part. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
