Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

     This is my second post today - if you're looking for my Precious Remembrance Project Thursday post, just scroll down! :)
     I'm giving the Papertrey Ink blog hop challenge a go again, and here's this month's challenge...

     I have to say, I struggled at first. Do you ever have that experience where you're making a card using a certain technique, and a card you made long ago using that same technique comes back to haunt you? I don't know if that makes sense to you, but that's what I was feeling. I kept trying to tilt my card, but it kept looking like the evil twin of this card I made a year or two ago that had left me with a bitter taste in my mojo-mouth.
     But anyways, I got over it, as you can see...

     For some reason, my camera just doesn't catch navy well - it keeps looking kinda funky in the photos, when it looks so much more hip in real life. ;)

     I'm glad this one turned out decently, because I spend a good chunk of time stamping those flowers (even those I was using the pre-arranged clusters from the stamp set) when I should've been studying, so I would've been pretty annoyed if came out crummy. ;)

     Anyways, I gotta peace out and study (SUMMER IS OFFICIALLY TWO WEEKS AWAY!), so God bless and thanks for stopping in!
