Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge!

Hello! I'm back again with more Papertrey goodness - I'm addicted to their stuff at the moment, good job I don't live closer, I'd be buying up the whole shop! ;-)
But today is the July Blog Hop! All the details are here. The theme for this month is the gorgeous colours below. As I said before, I don't own any PTI inks so went for the closest ones I have. Its such a pretty combo, I would never have thought of it though!
After my card for the Stamp-a-faire event, I had another go at making own backing paper. After my shocking attempts before, I thought I'd really take my time, check for inky finger smudges and actually hold on to the stamp(!) and I'm glad I did, I'm pretty pleased! I also tried doing a bit of gradient stamping on the central flower for a bit of demention! I hope you like it and thanks for hopping by!

Too cute. I was glancing at the cards and I saw yours and thought "that paper is so cute". I was going to look to see if you listed where you bought it, but you stamped everything. Fabulous!
