Finally a little something....

With the holiday weekend and all of the craziness of the last week I wasn't sure I'd be ready with my PTI weekly challenge, but I picked a color challenge and was able to whip something up at the last minute. Colors used were all from PTI--Kraft, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate, Aqua Mist. The sentiment is from the Paper Tray set.


Last night I got out my CTMH stamps again and made this simple, but sparkly card. (I used 3 colors of stickles so it really sparkles--Purple, Lavender, Crystal.) I started with a Dark Chocolate base and Plum Pudding and Spring Moss inks for the flowers (from the Dainty set). I stamped the sentiment (from Life is So Good set) in Dark Chocolate ink and tied a bow with some Martha Stewart ribbon. A couple of dew drops finished off the corner nicely.


I'm hoping now that things have calmed down a bit I will be spending more time in my craft room. I have some scrapbooking that I'd like to catch up on too. :-)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day.
