Happy Happy Birthday PTI Blog Hop!



Hey there!  Thanks for hopping my way!  I just love Papertrey Ink's monthly Blog Hop!  This month the focus is on men and boys!  I have so few masculine sets that it is always a struggle to come up with something, but I managed with what I had!  What did I come up with you ask?  Check it out.


Die cutting the stars from white cardstock, I stamped them with BB: Newsprint in True Black ink, swipped a bit of Hawaiian Shores ink around the edges.


Stamped a rectangle image from Button Boutique in Summer Sunrise ink, added my stars in various levels.


Added a few Summer Sunrise buttons...


Stamped my sentiment in Hawaiian Shores! 

Hope you enjoyed, have a great day and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Lindsay

  44. Wow, you sure posted a lot in the last week (yes... I'm catching up again!). So many that I could've commented on, but since I'm limiting myself to one comment (gotta save time, you know)... this card is so great. Love the unique way you used the rectangle from Button Boutique. The newsprint stamped stars with the inked edges, the perfectly placed buttons, your color choices... all absolutely perfect! And, congrats on being a random winner! :)
