prints designed by the talented Victoria Johnson
Victoria Johnson's use of color and pattern is truly unique and one of a kind. I have selected this mini collection from her as the basis for this month's blog hop. Aren't these just dreamy? Pick a selection of colors that you would like to work with and see if you can put some of your favorite supplies to work, whether they be florals, birds, or anything else you can dream up. There are some major opportunities for color exploration and play here, so have fun with this!
-Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am ET and 11:30pm ET on March 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge".

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:
Joyce M. created a custom floral background using many of the bright, beautiful colors found in the inspiration photo. The simple sentiment in the lower corner adds just the right touch, without detracting too much from the flowers.
Geri stamped floral elements directly onto her card base to help frame a sentiment banner. There is perfect balance created with the way everything is laid out and the way the banner is able to take center stage.
Leigh Penner did some amazing ink blending at the top of her card to create a fabulous background for her florals. The addition of the bird and the interesting colors it reflects really adds a lot of eye catching detail.
Congratulations to the winners! Please email customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thanks to everyone for playing along and sharing your beautiful projects!
