Happy Anniversary to PTI!

Today I'm making merry along with Papertrey Ink, as they celebrate their seventh anniversary. They've had challenges going since last week, and the party is still in full swing. Wonderful stamps, dies, inks, papers... don't forget to stop by and have a peek at the new releases which will be available very soon. Their challenge for today is to use one of their dies and make it the focal point of your creation.

I've done that, and will also include today's card for the longer challenge. Used this sketch and this color recipe:


Sketch-3Color-7

Here I must apologize. My mind is off in a hundred different directions, and this post is not going as well as I wanted. But if you can stand a photo of the card, I promise to stop soon.




The die and all the stamps are PTI, there are various inks, some twine from Timeless Twine, a ME stitched die, a scrap of blue, and a Neenah white base. I took three skinny scraps of the neon-y pink, yellow, and blue and adhered them to a scrap of white, then die cut "birthday." Love the way that turned out. As promised, I'll stop now. Happy dances everyone. : )
