It's Blog Hop Time!!



WooHoo!!! Another Papertrey blog hop, I love these!! This month we had to get inspiration from someplace. My friend Beth was talking about her Coastal Living magazine and I had never seen one before. So I checked it out online and found some awesome home decorating ideas. I fell in love with this room:



The green, white, and blue. So crisp and clean!! And it inspired my card:



I used the sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages and the new flourish stamp set. I haven't really used that one yet, and I was happy to break it open! I just love the blue and green together and the ribbon picks up the stripes in the inspiration photo, too.





Thanks for stopping by! Have fun hopping around tonight..I know I will!!
