CMCC #17... great friend

{for my Whimsy Stamps Release blog hop post please scroll down or click here.}

Hello, hello!!  Happy Wednesday... we have a fun new color challenge up at Colour Me..! that I know you are going to love!!   All the details can be found on the Colour Me...! blog.

 
 
Back in February during the PTI anniversary celebration I made a card for one of their many contests using a sketch and color combo that PTI provided.  I really loved how the card turned out (sadly it wasn't one of the winning projects, though!) and wanted to recreate it using a different color combo.  Today's card is the end result.  I used the same image from the PTI set Distressed Stripes, stamping the stripes from lightest to darkest color to create an ombre effect.  I changed things up a bit from the original (found here) by not distressing the edges, changing the twine from kraft colored to white, leaving off the wood veneer stars and adding the die cut word (a little gift from my sweet friend, Lisa).  The sentiment is from the PTI mini set Wonderful Words:  Teacher.

Thanks for stopping by...please check out the projects created by my fellow teamies Tara, Hayley, Sam, Katie, Brenda and April guest designer, Anita!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections; Stamps: PTI; Ink:  Stampin Up! & Hero Arts; Die cut:  PTI Wonderful Words friend; paper doily - Wilton; Twine:  Pretty Pink Posh
