there is no one like you....

 Hello friends!!  As many of you probably know, PTI is celebrating it's 6th anniversary and there have been some fun contests going on.  I missed one of them and wanted to get a card made for today's contest which is to make a project using one of PTI's Year of Flowers sets.  I have six of them and for the very first time (yep... very first time... so sad!) I inked up the YOF Larkspurs set.  I used the color combo for this week's CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.    I have to say that I'm super excited about today's PTI announcement.  PTI is now going to offer dies that match each of the YOF sets!!!  I'm planning on picking up the ones that corresponde to the sets I have.


Because I wanted to make sure I got the card done before 7:00 am est on Saturday I kept my card very simple.  I stamped the image on Vintage Cream cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black and then colored it with Copic markers.  Once I was done coloring the image I trimmed it to fit the card front as you see.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Larkspur set on Vintage Cream and die cut the fishtail banner using my MFT Fishtail Flag Stax dies.   The banner was trimmed down and the corners rounded.  I tied some kraft bakers twine through a Plum Pudding button and adhered it to the banner. 

Thanks for stopping by

Hello Rosie
You made me laugh, when I read "I kept it simple!'
Beautiful card, it has a soft quiet palette, which I really like.

Beautiful coloring, Rosemary & the button with twine is perfect for this wonderful card! Can't believe you've never used your YOF stamps when you like to use flowers on your cards. I may have to get a few now that there are matching dies, which they don't have for the small version I have. Happy Saturday!

Beautiful Rosemary! Yes, those dies are going to be a real win for sure!
