thank you..

Hey friends!  Going to try to make this a quick post... have a migraine today.. yuck!!  Made this card for this month's PTI Create Along With Us challenge, as well as the current ColourQ challenge.  I love the new Twig Wreath stamps and dies from PTI.   All the PTI design team projects using these new products are amazing (of course!) so it was hard to choose one to base my design on, but the closet was a lovely card by Betsy Veldman (see below).  I went with the idea of a banner, just made my a little bit bigger.  I used the lovely PTI set Garden Grace to create my little floral piece on the wreath (a Memory Box) die.  To create the texture on the banner I impressed it with some burlap.  The banner was die cut using a die from the MFT jumbo fishtail flag stax dies, as was the small banner that the sentiment is stamped on. 

 
Thanks for stopping by today...
