Tonight I thought would take part in my first Papertrey Blog Hop in spite of the time difference - well it's a Saturday night and I don't have to be up early tomorrow morning ;)
My mother in law, Pat, and I sat very companionably at the table this afternoon - she "stringing" beans from the garden and me making the card, with the sun streaming in on us - lovely!
The challenge for the hop is to use text in the piece - so I used the text dp from the Raspberry Fizz collection for part of the flower and panel and stamped the larger ocean tides petals with French script in ocean tides ink.
I decided to use my new set of Dahlia nestabilities to make the flowers and I scrunched and distressed them a bit "a la Dawn"! There is a vintage button, some twine, a bit of craft and aqua mist and some raspberry fizz ribbon to finish - phew!
Thanks so much for stopping by tonight - I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
