PTI's March 2016 Create Along With Us

Hello friends.  There was SO much to be inspired by this month over at Papertrey Ink, but the one that stood out to me was a simple little card by Melissa Phillips that simply said Summer to me!

It's bright, it's cheery, I love the red gingham at the bottom, the little string bow at the side of the flowers, I love it all!  Here's what I came up with:



I changed up my colors just a bit from Melissa's, but otherwise I kept the layout of the card the same.  My flowers came from Quilted: Summer and my sentiments from Wet Paint.  And don't you love the new Bright Buttercup ink color from last months release?!!  These colors and the red gingham definitely make me think Summer and picnics!!  :0)

Check out all the great inspiration cards on Nichole's blog right HERE and play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
