PaperTrey Blog Hop... Backgrounds



I'm so excited to be participating in this month's PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop.  The challenge for this month was to make a stamped background using PaperTrey stamps.  I started with a piece of Flower Patch designer paper by Making Memories.  I stamped one of the quilt blocks from PTI's Quilter's Sampler set in Soft Sky ink over each of the white polka dots. (Don't you just *love* polka dots??)

My focal point is a diecut butterfly from the Flower Patch embellishment box mounted onto another piece of polka-dotted dp, which is mounted on a piece of white cardstock that I cut with my nesties and ran through the swiss dots cuttlebug folder to add even *more* polka dots!  The little flag is stamped with the birthday saying from Mixed Messages and pierced.  The final touch was a little ribbon and button treatment.



Thanks for stopping by!! ~~ Tricia
