Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

It's the 25th of the month - one of my favorite days - because it is Papertrey Ink Blog Hop day! Here is the inspiration photo we are working with:


What "spoke" to me was the basket, the colors of red and pink and the motif inside the basket. Here is the card I created from the inspiration:



I used the Giga Guidelines 1 Impression plate on Smokey Gray cardstock and then lightly distressed with some gray ink. My basket was stamped with gray on Smokey Gray and I added a Damask Designs paper liner in the basket to match the band of DP on the card. Such a fun photo to work with and I am happy with the results :)  All products from Papertrey Ink.

Have fun hopping!
