February Blog Hop!

Spring is coming...at Papertrey, anyway! For the rest of us, I am beginning to lose hope! I have three posts tonight- my second card is last, and you will see it is not so spring-y, lol!!
No stamps...is that right?? Yes, that's right! I wanted to be able to use a punch and a stamped image together and have the same color, so I will show you how I did that. This card came from the leftovers of my inked paper and punch experiment- and it actually came out in better Spring colors than my original card!

Here's a closeup of the bunnies so you can see how the coloring is. The dotted papers are the Bitty Dots, of course. The bunny is a Martha Stewart punch. Background paper is from Everyday Blessing 6 x 6 pad. Card is Spring Moss, and the ribbon is Spring Moss twill. Border punch is from Fiskars. Colors are Spring Rain, Spring Moss, Sweet Blush, Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist and Lavender Moon.
Be sure and see the next two posts!!
