Papertrey Ink January 2017 Blog Hop

Hello friends.  It's the 25th and Nichole picked out a BEAUTIFUL inspiration photo for this months Blog Hop:

Blog Hop Inspiration

Who would have ever thought that black would look so elegant on a cookie?!  I took my inspiration definitely from the colors, the flowers, and the heart shape, and came up with this:


I am still head over heels in love with the Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical Die and used that for my card base and black layer.  I also used a part of the Cover Plate: Pretty Frame Die, and then added my stamped flowers from the Make It Market: Don't Forget to Write kit.  I also added the heart that I had laying on my desk from last weeks MIM challenge and stitched it up with some red embroidery floss and added it to the center of my card, along with the embossed sentiment from Heart Squared.  A few sequins and my Valentine's card for my mom is finished!  :0)

Can't wait to see how everyone else was inspired this month!  You can check it all out right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and a BIG thank you to all who comment...it really does make my day!
