PPPR January Blog Hop




Welcome to Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons January Blog Hop!!  If you are here from Melissa's Blog  then you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.  This month we are inspired by colour, and sharing projects we created, using this colour pallette from Design Seeds that feature PPPR files.  



Here is what I created. 



I always find colour challenges a bit of... well a challenge...  I don't quite know how to filter my ideas, and I always feel like I need to use every colour.  This time, I trued to do things a little differently.  I picked one color to focus on and went from there.  I picked the peachy/salmony colour.  After that, I chose the file I wanted to use - the adorable smiling rose, and things flowed pretty smoothly from there!

The card base is a PPPR file - A2 Card Base 3.  I have used it a bit lately, and plan to use it more - I am loving it!  You can pick up your own HERE




The cutie flower is one I LOVE!!  He looks SO cheerful.  He is from the "Flower Faces" cutting file.



The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas "Blooming for You" stamp set.  Isn't it perfect for this card??
