{ Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - March }

I had so much fun last month with my first blog hop that I decided to do it again! The challenge: "we want to see all of your very best backgrounds. They can be multi-colored or monochromatic. Simple or elegantly detailed. They can be created with a set originated for that purpose or a reinvention of images that were not. Be sure to include a separate photo of your completed background BEFORE you add it to your project so we can see it in all its glory! "

I fell in love with the Simply Stationary set and I wanted to use it for this challenge. This is the set I picked after winning the blog hop last month!!! I played around to see what I like best. The brown center flower is from Wise Owl set. I just love the way this came out. My Guide Lines Two is on the way to me!

Supplies: Papertrey Ink paper, cardstock and stamps (Simply Stationary, Mega Mixed Messages, Wise Owl), Stampin' Up ink (Summer Sun and Close to Cocoa) Michaels ribbon, crochet flower (handmade by my mom), Karen Foster button, Sizzix die cut tag, Basic Grey brads, scalloped punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Here is my stamped background in progress and finished.
