PTI April Blog Hop...

Hello friends!!  Popping in with a card for this month's PTI blog hop.  Wasn't sure if I was going to play along this month, but the inspiration photo was just so beautiful I decided to give it a go.  I should have taken the dog for a walk this morning, but instead I got my card done.  When I saw the inspiration photo I only thought of one PTI stamp set... The Sweet Life.  Pulled out three different pink inks and two different greens and got to work.  I'm also posting this to the new Less is More challenge:  use a tag.  The tag was made using my Stampin Up! Tag Topper Scalloped punch.  I wanted to have my sentiment on the tag so I embossed it in gold so that it would stand out on the navy tag.  After die cutting and stamping all my pieces I layered everything up and attached it to the tag.  It has been so long since I actually embossed a piece of cardstock using my Big Shot I had to stop and think about how to put together the sandwich!!  I added a bit of pink ribbon tied with navy twine to the tag, adhered everything and I was done.  Love how it turned out.  Hopefully this is clean and simple enough for the LIM gals, lol!!



Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white, Stampin Up! navy; Stamps and dies:  PTI; Punch:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up! Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose and Pear Pizzazz; Memento New Sprout; lattice embossing folder; VersaMark watermark ink; Ranger Gold Embossing powder
