every moment...

Hello friends!!  Here with a card that I made for this week's Make It Monday to create your own square frame.  I also used the colors from the new Dynamics Duo challenge:  Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke. 


I only a few PTI sets that would work for the challenge and all of them are from Dawn McVey's Boutique Borders line.  So I pulled all of them out to see which one I might use.  I created a square using Boutique Borders Thanks and stopped right there as I really liked what I saw.  Then I decided to pair that set up with Simply Jane to create my very simple and kinda old school card.  The square was stamped using Crumb Cake ink and the silhouette with Always Artichoke.  After adhering the die cut silhouette I added some pearls in a kraft color for a bit of bling.  The sentiment was stamped in black and the entire piece matted with an artichoke colored cardstock and mounted on a kraft card base.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White and kraft, Bazzill artichoke green; Ink:  SU! Crumb Cake & Always Artichoke; Memento Tuxedo Black; Stamps:  PTI; Pearls Kaiser Craft; Dies: PTI
