Papertrey Ink Blog Hop with Simple Stems



Hi there, Happy Sunday!

Papertrey Ink 

Lucy, found a ball of yarn and decided to have some fun.
(I posted on Instagram,the other day.. for national puppy day)

Here is my take on the beautiful inspiration photo, I added some blue to my card with Jewel bling.


I die-cut the vase , raised my panel with fun foam. I shaded a piece of paper with brown inks then placed it behind the raised panel.


 When I saw Betsy use this Simple Stems set from Papertrey Ink I knew I had to have it. I have to admit I did spend quite a bit of time on this card, more then normal. Enjoy the hop!

Thanks for the visit. God bless!
