Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop


Welcome to Papertrey Ink blog hop! This month the challenge is to use any Papertrey Ink that you haven't use for a while or maybe even one that haven't been inked at all. I missed a couple of the Papertrey blog hop during the holiday season, so I am glad that I get to play and join the hop again this month. For complete list of the participants please go to Papertrey Ink blog.

For my card, I decided to combine several sets that I haven't been using as much. Asian Fusion, Round & Round, and Just the Ticket. The color combo was based from this color combo from Moxie Fab Neutral Color challenge (for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week).





Challenges:
Let's Ink It Up  - NO DIGI and Anything Goes
I Love Promarkers - keep it sweet & simple

As always, when I do used this set, I like to do the french knot for the center of the flower. Here's a close up of the french knots. Sorry, the color look a bit washed out. I didn't remember to take the close up pic till it's already way late at night and didn't have thebest lighting.


I'll keep it short and sweet, since I know you have lots of blog to hop to. Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you enjoy your visit here. Please leave a comment to let me know you stop by. Have a great day!
