Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

This month's Papertrey challenge is to use a PTI stamp that hasn't seen ink or not been used in awhile.

I decided to use their anniversary stamp set Round and Round that I think I've only used one other time. And given the cold winter weather I picked a distinctly spring inspired colour scheme to create this card:




I also used PTI plum pudding and spring moss inks. And I love the addition of a doily!

Does it make you think of spring, it sure does me.

Thanks for stopping by!

It definitely makes me think of spring! Beautiful card, Rosanne! Are the doilies you use "special" for cardmaking or the regular ones?
