This months inspiration is a fun take on florals, ruffles & pleats.  Leaves me envisioning New Leaf  ink stamped onto Aqua Mist cardstock with perhaps some pops of Harvest Gold or Lemon Tart die-cuts!  Have fun perhaps trying your hand at pleats or ruffles using your favorite ribbons.  This photo sparks all kinds of amazing summery ideas!  We look forward to seeing your creations!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (June 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!


Alex used one of the patterned heart from Heart-2-Heart to create this beautiful floral accent for her card.  I love how she used the layers of color and was able to create something so intricate with just a single die and stamp.  Just lovely!

Marybeth L. created this card using one of my favorites, Frilly Flowers.  The way she used Fancy Flourishes in the background helps to anchor everything effortlessly.  I also love the way she added her pop of yellow with the card base… subtle but definitely striking and unpredictable. 

Jean put together this bright and cheerful card with the Turning a New Leaf dies & stamp set.  I just adore the way she incorporated pops of yellow into her background by adhering lots of small Lemon Tart buttons.  Not only does it add texture, it also looks amazing!

Congratulations to all three winners!  Please send a note to customer service providing the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to.  And thank you to everyone for playing along!  It was amazing to see so many unique takes on this months inspiration photo!
