PTI April 2017 Blog Hop

What a beautiful spring here in PA.  
It was so nice over the weekend we were able to get all our flower gardens weeded and mulched, 
the fresh mulch and new plants are looking so pretty.  Spring time greens are some of my favorite colors! Along with all the gorgeous spring blooms of course! 

Today's PTI challenge is an inspiration piece.  
You can find the inspiration details and the challenge on the PTI Blog.

April Inspiration

This just looks like vintage fabric I wish I could find for my patio furniture pillows.  

This is the card I made using the colors similar to those in the photo. 

I am making a conscious effort to use more patterned paper in the design of my cards. 
I'm pretty sure I have a never ending supply at this point.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you enjoy the hop, 
and good luck if you play along! 

Happy Spring!
