PTI 8th Anniversary....

Hey friends!!  PTI is celebrating its 8th anniversary!  And in keeping with past celebrations they have lots of fun contests going on.  Today I have a card for their day one DT Inspiration challenge.  We were given eight color combos and eight sketches.   The challenge is to pick one color combo and one sketch for your project.  I had a hard time picking just one of each, but finally settled on one of each, got to work and came up with this:



Initially I was going to use patterned paper (as was suggested in the design tips), but didn't like how it looked so opted to stamp the block portion of the sketch.  I then die cut my flower pieces using the Friendly Flowers and Friendly Flower dies.  The word is from the Pretty Peonies stamp and die set.  All the inks are from Stampin Up! and match the PTI colors fairly closely.  I layered everything up and then added the "birthday" sentiment (from Pretty Peonies) in black ink.   Since I used nice bright colors for my card I'm also adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Bright and Beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & kraft; Stamps and dies:  PTI; Inks:  Stampin Up!
