Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

I'm very excited to finally be participating in a Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge.




My card is pretty simple but I really love the way it turned out. I used the new Mix & Mat: Scallops die and cut out a piece of white card stock. I then masked off different sections and sponged the colors on the white piece. I used Smokey Shadow for my grey color and then sponged Fresh Snow over top of that. It softened it a bit, but dried darker than I had hoped. I still love the way it turned out, though. I also used the Banner Style dies that I cut out of white card stock. I inked up the sentiment using Bright Buttercup and Orange Zest giving it a bit of an ombre look. I then layered the banners and then popped it up using dimensionals. My last little touch was some glossy white nuvo drops that I added to each side of the panel.

Here are the products I used for this card:
Stamps: Banner Style (PTI)
Card Stock: White (PTI)
Miscellaneous: White Gloss Nuvo Crystal Drops (SSS)


 If you have a minute, please leave a comment. I'd love to hear what you thought of my creation.
Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.
