Its PTI Blog Hop Time


This month's challenge is:
Easter and other spring celebrations will be here before you know it! And besides, there's nothing better to beat the winter doldrums than to turn our minds towards those first spring flowers bursting through the ground and the birds returning with their sweet songs. Your challenge this month is to put a little "spring" into your step, by incorporating the flowers, familiar sights and colors of spring into a project. Think birds nests containing newly laid eggs, flowers in pretty pastels, new green leaves, baby chicks and anything else that speaks to your creative soul! We look forward to seeing all of your interpretations of this fun challenge!

I give you my springy card. I love this combination of PTI's two newest colors, Melon Berry and New Leaf. I used Vintage Vanilla for my base. I cut out a rectangle using my nestabilities. I used Pine's new set, Beyond Basic Borders. This is an awesome set. All images are from that set with the exception of the bird. The bird is from Hero Arts. Have fun hopping!
