Papertrey Blog Hop!



Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog. I've been away for a bit, but managed to find my way back. I am joining in on today's Papertreyink blog hop. The challenge was to use black backgrounds, etc on your card. I decided a guy birthday card was in the works since that's something that's always sneaking up on you. Anyway, here is my card:

Hi Keva!! So happy to see you...and this little houndstooth wonder :) There is nothing more striking than some red mixed in with this pattern. What an awesome guy card! Love the red lined pocket and the little krafty banner, TOO!

The houndstooth pattern in black and kraft is very striking. Love the seed packet die used on the front and your sentiment grouping as well.

The houndstooth is a terrific classic pattern - great on a playful card!

Ooh, Keva! Love this one, especially the colors! Lining the envelope is a great idea. The buttons and banner balance everything out beautifully.
