PTI Blog Hop

   Happy Design Team Appreciation Day!  Can’t think of a more inspirational bunch to honor, can you?  So diverse in stylings, but all such high quality.  What a great team!  This is my first time playing along with the blog hop, and I’m quite excited!  I chose to put my own spin on Dawn McVey’s Make a Wish card.   Here’s Dawn’s creation:           


Switched up the colors a bit to make it fit a with sympathy tone.  My favorite part was stamping the flourish in new leaf and in spring moss to give it a bit of a shadow.  Seemed like just the new leaf alone was a bit flat.  (Sorry my pic is a bit dark- it’s cream on smokey shadow).           


 I also thought it was fun to leave the die on when I stamped the flourish in Versamark- kind of keeps the frame around the label.               


 Thanks for hopping by!  I’m looking forward to checking out everyone’s creations tonight!                


supplies: PTI cardstock (smokey shadow, vintage cream, spring moss), PTI ink (new leaf, spring moss), Colorbox ink (Charcoal), Versamark ink, PTI stamps (Polka Dot Basics, Fancy Flourishes, Mega Mixed Messages), PTI ribbon (new leaf),  Spellbinders die (Labels 4), Martha Stewart punch (butterfly) DMC floss, button, rhinestones.
