PTI March Blog Hop

This month's PTI Blog Hop challenge is to gleam inspiration from the above photo and use it to create a project!

I am over-the-moon about this challenge as I absolutely LOVE a beautiful, bright, cheerful yellow! It's my all-time favorite color and has been since I was a kid. I LOVE it!

I had previously made a card for the PTI January Blog Hop (here). When I saw the inspiration photo for this month's blog hop, I knew I wanted to make a modified version of it in bright & cheery yellow.

So they say 3rd times a charm ... I'm not so sure. Each time I've made this card design, I've tweaked it just a bit to make it better. Just when I think I've got it, I look at the final result, and there's always a little something I'd like to do differently. Maybe if I keep trying, I'll end up with a pretty rainbow-spectrum of cards I can gift to someone special. :)

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Rosie Posie
Ink: Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, Lemon Whip (Amuse), Lucky Limeade (SU), Peeled Paint distress (Ranger)
Dies: Rosie Posie, Rick Rack border, Edgers #3
Cardstock: Stampers Select White, Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise
Other: Lemondrop bakers twine (The Twinery)

Thanks ever so much for stopping by today!

    1. Very pretty card like the tone on tone zig-zag borders. I started out with that idea, but scrapped it and ended up with something totally different.
      Nice job!
