Papertrey Ink March blog hop background paper challenge


Welcome to my creations for the March Papertrey Ink blog hop! I had sooooo much fun making these background papers! I was so excited when I saw the challenge posted. 

I have some Basic Grey Sugared paper that I thought would be fun to recreate, especially when I pulled out my Papertrey Ink Green Thumb stamp set! I think the large poofy flower stamp from that set almost perfectly matches the flower in the BG paper! I made it in three different shades, would have made more combinations, but I ran out of time! I took a photo of all four papers together so you can see the similarity. Tell me what you think and which color combination you like best!

For all of them, I used the swirl from Papertrey Ink Silent Night and the flower poofs from the Green Thumb set. Colors and further descriptions of the PTI ink and paper I used are in the individual posts below. Please take a look and let me know what you think! Thanks for visiting!

PeggySue, these are all wonderful! I think my favorite (can I only pick one?), though, would be the rose colored one in the back. I think it's a combo of the color hue and the swirls. Just LOVELY! I'm so impressed you made these!
