August Papertrey Blog Hop!

This will be a quick post -- let's face it - you've got lots of hopping to do!!

When I saw the inspiration photo on Nichole's blog - I was IMMEDIATELY drawn to that awesome tweed loopy flower.

I decided that I totally was going to make my own, and I sat down with some felt, a rotary cutter and ruler.  Well -- I had planned to do a step by step to show you how I made it, but I needed all hands on deck -- no one to take the photos - sheesh.  Perhaps I'll give this another shot when someone is home to help me, lol.

Anyway - it's not perfect, but I do love it -- lots of texture, and fun thrown in :).

Here is the completed card -- I love the sentiment, it fit just perfectly at the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by today - looking forward to all of your creations!!  We're having PERFECT Summer weather here - hope it's as beautiful where you are, too!

Supplies:
Stamps (all PTI): Thank You mini set, Background Basics: Tin Types
Ink (all PTI): Blueberry Sky, Dark Chocolate

I love your flower! That is what caught my eye too but I had no idea how to create it so I went the easy route and made the wreath. I love the colors with that wood grain panel,lovely card!
