Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop Challenge

Hi again! I am back with a card for today's



Ok. First I thought "Easy!". Then it took me hours to come up with a (not so satisfying) card inspired by this:



I struggled so much! I wanted to use all the colors, but couldn't make them work. Then I wanted to include some tulle - but you'll see that you can almost NOT see it. Well, I didn't want to give up after spending so much time on this and ended up reducing the colors to the pinks/reds and using the striped design:


I trimmed the patterned paper strips regarding the pattern to not interrupt it. Oh, and the tulle is on top - that ruffled border.
Phew. Not easy. Really can't wait to see what creative people made of this inspiration photo!

Happy hopping and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Everything Papertrey Ink, except for

Love the 'reduced' gradient and the little tulle strip (and what a clever idea to make the pattern continue throughout) :)
