PTI August Blog Hop in My style!



Here is my take on the beautiful picture for Papertrey Ink's bloghop challenge this month. I tried to use as many of my favorite "things" for it for Case Study's Signature Style challenge. For those of you who follow my blog know I love to make my own flowers, I couldn't live without my PTI stamps, grandma's old lace, that leaf die and my roll of hempstring (-:. I love polkadots and my cards are usually not super bright and colorful (something I try hard at changing, but bright colors and big patterns still don't feel really "me".)
I'm also entering this for the "Anything Goes" challenge at A Passion for Papertrey!

For my card I've used:
Stamps; Tag its #2 and Button Boutique
Impression plate: Book Print
Dies: Banner Builder
Have a great day and a great hop, hugs, Karin

ps. the 27th is the last day to enter my little giveaway; HERE

Your card is gorgeous. ;-) I love the subdued take on the inspiration photo colors - the earthy, rich colors are more to my liking than bright colors. Although, I'm trying to branch out a little. ;-) Love, love, love your beautiful card!
