Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop

Hello!

Its that time of the month again! No NOT that!! haha, its PTI Blog Hopping time!!! This month the challenge is to get your inspirations from book covers, you could pick your own or use a cover from this photo:


I used the a cover from the photo, the top left. I tend to go a little more literal with my inspirations so for my card i started out by die cutting the alphabets all in shades of blue. The blue tied in nicely to CAS-ual Friday's Blue Challenge and due to it being thanksgiving i had extra time to enter it at CAS-ual Fridays!


Since i was going with blue i made it a baby card and die cut the word congradulations. I die cut the letters out of differnt shades of blue card stock.


The book cover's letters were askued a bit, but for my card i descided to make the letter all straight. As a final touch and to help tie it into an acutally baby boy card i stamped a tiny sail boat, colored the sail red and cut it out.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Dana
