November PTI Blog Hop!

Blog-hop-logo


Today is the day to see every one's fabulous creations for the November "Book Cover" inspiration PTI Blog Hop.  What a fun idea!  I started going through my books, and just wasn't finding anything, so I decided to get on Amazon...!  Whoo hoo!  Bountiful ideas for more inspiration down the road, but this cover just grabbed my attention right away.


I immediately saw the woodgrain....Background Basics - Barnyard!
Then that fabulous flower...Friends to the End!
And I knew I could create the landscape, using Nicole's MIM technique of blending Copics!
Of course the sentiment would be embossed with white, and viola!  Here is my version!!



This was a fun one!  Now to go hopping!  Thanks for stopping by!
