PTI April Blog Hop

It's PTI Blog Hop time again! Yay!

This month Nichole gave us a gorgeous inspiration picture.  I am guessing we will be seeing a LOT of Rosie Posie today, don't you?  ;) 
Here is my card, inspired by this picture...

IMG_6648_edited-1

I used the Quatrefoil die for a little masked background.   Then I added a mat stack and some Rosie Posie.  I finished it off with a little Copic detail.  The sentiment is from Communique Sentiments.  Love that set too!

So glad you could come by today!  I can't wait to hop around and see what everyone has today! If you want to see all the cards on today's hop, go check out Nichole's blog for a full list!

 Thanks so much for coming by!  Have a great day!
