June PTI Blog Hop


"This month we thought it would be fun to focus on COLOR! We want to see your favorite Papertrey color schemes put to work."

A favorite color combo of mine, particularly for masculine cards, is:
Ocean Tides
Spring Moss
Smokey Shadow

And here's what I did with that combo this time around!


I used the woodgrain embossing plate on the ocean tides cardstock. Versamark on the spring moss for the dots- focal image & dots from the wonderful anniversary set Round & Round. Sentiment from Men of Life.

A little edge distressing on the green strip & a Happy Father's Day on the inside! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by- enjoy the hopping!! Go here to see the list of participants!
