I just can't stop playing with my PTI goodies! I used Bigger Blooms, and Text Background Basics to create my card. I used one of my new dies from YNS called "Photo Frame Die". I sprayed it with adhesive, and sprinkled it with diamond dust.

I hope you will play along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!

  I used the very popular WPLUS9 stamp set "Fresh Cut Florals" to create my card.
I stamped my large orange flowers using Tangerine Tango, first, I stamped on a scrap piece of paper before stamping the flower, and then I stamped the swirly center with the same ink at 100%.  My patterned paper is from the Echo Park Here and Now collection. I'm glad you stopped by and I hope you will play along with us this week!

Just For You!

TuesTrig

Hello! Today I am excited to be playing along with two of my favorite challenges, Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger, and this weeks Papertrey Ink: Make It Monday.



To create my card I used lots of Papertrey Ink goodness! Ruby Rose, Farm and Barn, Boutique Borders: Birthday, and Boutique Borders: Accessories. I also used the matching die for the BB Accessories set, and Ruby Rose. I used Stampin Up Wild Wasabi, Pretty In Pink, and Barely Banana. And A Muse Studio pigment ink colors Pebble, and Shell. My flagged border is from a DCWV Spring paper pad.
  I think I captured the folksy, soft, floral loveliness of the Tuesday Trigger picture. I would love to have a room just like that one!  I loved making this card, and I hope you like it!
