March - PTI Blog Hop

Welcome! It's the hoppiest time of the month... yeah, that was corney... Welcome PTI Blog Hoppers! This month we were asked to use buttons. I wanted to do something creative with sewing the buttons to the card and here is what I came up with. I planned to use the PTI Around and About Sentiments to stamp the circles, but the stamps were too small (or my circles were too big). Anyway, it wouldn't fit, so I created my own circles in Photoshop, printed them out, and glued it all together.




I LOVE this pretty PP from Basic Grey. TFL!... and happy hopping!
