PTI January Blog Hop

Papertrey Ink's January Blog Hop is going on today! Here is the challenge in Nichole's words:

This month, in honor of the new year, we are challenging you to pick your favorite project from 2011 and share it with all of us! To take it a step further, you are also challenged to create a second card that is inspired by the favorite project you select. Your new version of an old favorite could carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets. We look forward to seeing your best creations from 2011 as well as one of your first projects for 2012!

One of my favorite cards from 2011 was this one:

And here is my new version. I chose to use the same ink blending technique and a similar color scheme.

Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy the Hop!
