Inspired by Mish

Welcome to the Papertrey Blog Hop! Tonight my card is inspired by a Christmas card of Michelle Wooderson's which I found in the Papertrey gallery. Here it is...
Oh - too funny! My dd just came home from work and saw my card. "That's pretty, Mom," she said, "It looks like a Mish card!" SCORE!! :-)

For my card, I used the Vintage Picnic Basket set and the same basic layout, but changed the colors and basket fillers to reflect spring instead of winter. I just love Mish's style, don't you?!

I paper pieced my basket and then added some accents with an E31 copic marker. The tulips are colored with copics as well. DP is from the Polka Dots Basics and Bitty Dot Basics pads.

Thanks for dropping by! Happy Hopping!!

I don't usually love all the different patterned papers mixed on the same card...just not my style....but this card is gorgeous! I love how springy it makes me feel...I may have to try using different prints after all!
