birthday wishes...

Hello friend!!  Our nice weather has gone and been replaced with typical NW April weather...grey skies and a chance of rain.  Oh well... at least Easter was beautiful!!  Anywhoo... have a card I made for PTI's current Make It Monday challenge, as well as ColourQ.   I check out the MIM challenge each Monday and try to get something made, but usually run out of time.  However, when I saw this week's MIM challenge was collage stamping I wasn't going to let it pass me by.  I love collage stamping!!


I used no less than five PTI sets on this one little card.   The PTI sets I used are:  Harvest Berries, Fancy Folk Art, Turning a New Leaf, Polka Dot Basics 2 and Background Basics Text Styles.  Using Memento's Angel Pink I stamped the tiny polka dots and script images and then layered the leaf image using the coral ink.  The sentiment was layered over those images using the light brown ink and finally the berries were added in yellow.   I really love how this card turned out.  It is straight up simple stamping... something I love!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  PTI; Inks:  Stampin Up! Cameo Coral; Memento:  Dandelion & Angel Pink; Hero Arts Latte

Rosemary, your collage-stamping is always beautiful & perfect. (I was also working on something, yesterday, for the PTI-MIM.) Thanks for the inspiration! I love your choice of stamps. Simply BEAUTIFUL!

We've had some MUCH needed rain yesterday and today. YAY, I love it! The temperature has fluctuated so much, from 50s to 90. We've already had to turn on our A/C.

Sending you some sun-filled wishes!
