PTI October Blog Hop...

Hello friends!!  The 25th has rolled around again and that means a new PTI blog hop!  This month we have some wonderful non-traditional holiday/Christmas color palettes to choose from for our projects.   I had a hard time picking one, but finally settled on the combo of Raspberry Fizz, Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf and came up with this crazy little card:

I don't own many PTI Christmas/holiday sets (note to self... must change that, lol!), but I do own the cute little set Winter Swirls.  The layout is based on the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I was going to go with a white on white scheme with the colors being brought in with some stamping, but decided part way through to incorporate colored cardstock, as well.  At the last minute decided to add some clear sequins for a little bit of sparkle.  The card is a bit funky, but I like it!


Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & New Leaf; SU! Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise & Real Red; Stamps:  PTI; Inks:  Stamping Up! and Hero Arts
