Sending Birthday Hugs & Wishes ~ PTI Blog Hop

sendingbirthdayhugsmaureenplut

Good morning!  Welcome to my Papertrey Ink Blog Hop post!  I was so thrilled with this month’s challenge…just look at all this inspiration!

aprilbloghop

The tilted butterfly at the top reminded me of this BIG butterfly die I’ve had for ages but have never used because of its size.  However, I think it’s perfect for today’s challenge.  I die cut it out of glitter cardstock and glued it onto a hexagon embossed panel for some visual texture.  I kept the “tilted” theme going with the banner and bakers twine.  I remembered Nichole’s tip a few years ago to use a hole punch to help your twine stay in place…in this case, on the diagonal.  Some gems and enamel dots complete the whimsy :)  Thanks so much for visiting and for all your kind comments :)  I’m looking forward to seeing all the lovely creations after work :)  Have a great hop!
