Papertrey Ink's November 2012 Blog Hop

I loved the inspiration ideas that PTI has for this month's Blog Hop, taking a magazine or book cover as your inspiration piece for you card.  So clever and something I never thought but have to admit I have seen cards on blogs that have used this very inspiration...just so clever.  I don't save my magazines usually, once I read them and take out what I want to save I take them to my local coffee shop that I go to regularly.  I had to do some digging because I knew that I did have a few issues that had too many ideas to toss it out. I used an old Tea Time magazine and made my card a birthday card.  I pulled out all of my sets that anything to do with birthday and started playing around. I loved the look of different fonts and different sizes too, and I am so happy with how my card turned out. 

My inspiration....

My card....thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
