Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop!

This month's blog hop challenge was to create a project with a masculine theme, which is definitely not my usual style.  I'm glad to have played along though as it got me to step out of my creative box a bit.  I don't think it turned out too bad!

Debby of Lime Doodle creates some absolutely fabulous cards and when I saw this one, I just had to CASE it!  I loved the look of the rounded corners on the squares and it reminded me a lot of Maile Belles recent PTI set: Modern Basics.
I just broke the design down to minimal layers, putting the rounded sqares flat on the base then adding the sentiment and gift embellishment on top with dimensional adhesive dots.  The skinny little sentiments in PTI's Mat Stack sets are perfect for creating banners.  This sentiment is from the Mat Stack 1 set.

I know there are TONS of beautiful projects to see on the hop, so if you've found your way here, thanks so much for stopping by!

Fab design and great use of color! Love that you were able to sneak in a touch of bling on the gift, but it's still perfect for a guy. Great job!
