Blog Hop with Papertrey!

It's Blog Hop time again with Papertrey Ink! Woo Hoo! When I first read what the requirement was for this month (design my own background paper using PTI stamps) I thought "Oh no - I can never do that." I didn't even try to use my GuideLines 2 set, (I'm still a bit overwhelmed with it LOL) but I am so in love with the new Wishing You set that I decided to use that set to make my background design. It's simple and quick but that's all I had time for this week. Thanks for looking. Can't wait to see everyone's creations.
Here is the background I came up with. I scored diagonally with the scor-pal then inked up the dotted tulip and made a simple pattern.

I then put together this card using the new Hibiscus Pink with Ripe Avocado - a very rich color combo. I love this new Hibiscus Pink. The font in this set is divine! Thanks Melissa for another great set!

After I looked at this for a day or so I also used the same idea to create a really simple BG for a loss of pet sympathy card I needed for a friend. I forgot to take a pic of the BG before I turned it into the card but you get the idea - same technique - different image. This little add on set from PTI is WONDERFUL! Perfect set of sentiments to create a sweet card for anyone who has experienced losing a pet. Here's my card using the same concept.
