PTI Blog Hop

Hi Friends! It's that time of the month again...PTI Blog Hop~~!!
Here's the inspiration picture

 
And my cards. For the 1st one I started my stamping with PTI Background Basics.Gingham Stamp set in Pure Poppy. Layered a heart doily on top, followed by some stamped banners from Banner Builder and the new make It Market Beautiful Brushstrokes


 Next up a card made with Note Niblets Stamp Set . I embossed six banners and water colored them in Hawaiian Shores and Pure Poppy. The weird thing is the colors look different. Must be because of the embossing. I lined them up on an angle added a sentiment and flicked some watercolor in the background with the same colors.
 



That''s it for me this month! What a fun inspiration picture !! Thanks for visiting! Hugs, Char

Your cards are so sweet, Char! Really love your clever use of the banner flags, and how fun the embossing changed the whole look of the colors. And what a stunning, vintage-inspired, shabby chic design on the first card, too. So completely up my alley!
