Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge

Perfect timing on this month's PTI blog hop... My stamps from the new release just arrived a few days ago, and I had the whole day with nothing specific to do!

This month's hop is a photo challenge.


As soon as I saw this photo I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Since I've been dying to use the new Christmas stamps from the September release, I knew I was going to be using Candy Cane Christmas (stripes) to make a stamped background (repetition) in all these awesome colors. Here's my card...


I have to be honest and say I'm a little disappointed with my finished card, mostly because of the limitations of my ink collection. I love the combination of colors in the inspiration photo, and I did my best to match them from the options I have.


Thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a great weekend! :)
