PTI August 2011 Blog Hop Challenge

WooHoo. Today is PTI's Blog Hop. You can find links to all the participants here. The challenge is to create something inspired by this photo. I knew what I wanted to do the instant I saw the photo. The challenge for me was to find the right paper and low and behold, it was hiding deep in my hoarded stash. The bow is my first attempt at wrinkled ribbon. I used SU taffeta ribbon to make a bow but it looked too formal so, knowing the ribbon was a synthetic, I used a heat gun on it.

Paper: SU - Cherry Cobbler, Confetti White; Chatterbox - Loft Bias Plaid;
Ink: SU - Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue; Memento Tuxedo Black

I really love how this card has a masculine feel to it even though the picture is so feminine. It is a really great interpretation of the challenge. I also really liked the little tutorial! TFS!

Very clever using the heat gun on the ribbon - it's fantastic! Love the little picnic scene you've set here, and that paper is indeed the perfect paper. Glad you found it in your stash. ;-) Beautiful card!
