This month's Papertrey Blog Hop involves recycling some of the packaging which lovingly wraps Papertrey goodies. I can't think of any other mail-order company that takes as much pride in their shipping as PTI. There is cardboard to prevent cardstock corners from bending, tissue-wrapped stamp sets, and extra newsprint paper for filling in the gaps in the box. I chose to use that newsprint here on my card. I dream of beaches with white sand like this...
I cased myself, but I really like paper piecing with this umbrella. Enjoy!
Paper: PTI Spring Rain, PTI newsprint (packaging), sei (patterned)
