Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

by cbaptista on 03/25/2012

Papertrey Ink hosts a blog hop challenge every month and the image below is the inspirational photo for this month’s challenge.  The details for the blog hop can be found here.

This is my first time participating in their blog hop and this is the card I came up with:

I chose to focus on the yellow and aqua color scheme, the striped and polka dot patterns, and the pretty bow in the photo.  (I’m not sure why the aqua is showing up more blue in my photo. Trust me, it really is aqua ;) )  The color scheme was a little out of my comfort zone so that in itself was a challenge!  Honestly, I was on the fence about participating in this challenge, partly because of the color scheme and partly because I’ve been in a creative rut for the past month or so (that’s what being sick for all of February will do to those creative juices! Ha!).  I had a really hard time coming up with something, but I’m glad I pushed through it because I’m pretty pleased with the final results.  Thanks for stopping by! :)
