Papertrey September Blog Hop

This month's Papertrey blog hop challenge is to create a project inspired by the above photo.  I chose to take inspiration from both the colors and the stripes.  Here's my take on the challenge:
I created my "stripe" border using the pencil image from Happy Trails stamped in the colors (as I interpreted them) from the photo.   I've got to say that I really love the Happy Trails stamp set.  It is so much fun to use!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted otherwise):
Paper:   Stamper's Select White, Pure Poppy
Ink:  Enchanted Evening, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy, Basic Gray (SU)
Stamps:  Happy Trails, Mini Scrapbook Series:  Library Ledger
Other:  Beautiful Blooms II #3 die, Gem sticker (Stampendous)

Thanks for looking!
