PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop

Happy Weekend to everyone....this month's PTI blog challenge is to create using embroidery floss.  Wow....I have a lot of embroidery floss from my cross stitching days.  It has been a long time since I have used it.  I went very simple with the idea that I would create a very springy card.  I liked coordinating the polka dot border with the embossed larger polka dot pannel with all of the colors of the embroidery floss complimenting the fun colors in the stick pin flowers.
And...with spring coming...I get to take pictures outside of my cards...that makes life so much easier!  I have been having a really hard time getting good pictures inside! 

Happy blog hopping!

Ingredients:  PTI Polka Dots; Mega Mixed Messages; SU Whispher White and Pretty in Pink Cardstock; Kaiser Kraft Gems; SU Certainly Celery and Basic Black Ink; Jillibean Soup Stick Pins
