April PTI Blog Hop

It's time again for the PTI Blog Hop ~ this month the
focus is on tilting ~ designing on an angle.  I combined
challenges as usual.  For the first card I used the colors 
at ColourQ, and for the second I used the "Let's Celebrate"
challenge at A Passion for Papertrey.  I had a fun discovery
recently when I realized I could use shiny confetti on my 
cards just like sequins.

  2. I like that you used the tulip border with your tulips and put them on a tag. I almost did a tulip card I had seen that used several chevrons that kind of made a rick rack look and then they had the tulips coming out of the peaks. Think they used your colors. It was cute, too. Like your guitar card too.

  3. Two fabulous cards Jean. I love those vibrant tulips, I haven't had that set out in a while. Love the embossed background.

  4. I was wrong. The tulips are down in the valleys, which really makes more sense, the leaves would go UP.
