PTI June Blog Hop




And now for something completely different ...... PTI-wise that is. Inspiration from a photo is abit new for this challenge, but a very welcome one.  I have had some SEI papers for awhile with this kind of graduated colour, so was delighted to be able to use them (I think it can be seen in the photo).


Whilst waiting for my daughter to finish ballet last night, I saw a gorgeous card at the newsagent, in rich tangerine colours with embossed swirls on it and gems in several colours, just beautiful, but I don't buy cards anymore...

  1. Oh, yes--that graduated paper is perfect, and your card is lovely! Those are such girly butterflies--I've not seen them before. I'm like you: I don't buy cards any more either, but I still get inspiration from them!
