PTI November Blog Hop

Hello!!  Hope everyone here in the US had a lovely Thanksgiving!  We had a really wet one, but that is the Pacific Northwest in the winter!  Stopping in with my card for this month's PTI blog hop.  Nichole provided a lovely inspiration photo with lots of different directions you could go in.  I decided to focus on the two packages that were done in blue with gold polka dots.  It made me think of Tiffany Blue so the hunt was on to find a light robin's egg blue in my collection.  I finally hit on one with some very old Close to My Heart cardstock that I have.  I used PTI's What the Doodle: Snowflake, as well as a sentiment from Rustic Wreath.  I stamped the large snowflake on the light blue cardstock using VersaMark ink, applied gold embossing powder and heat set.  Once I had that done I die cut the snowflake using the matching die.  The swirl image from the set was stamped twice using Delicata Golden Glitz on a panel of white cardstock that I die cut and then the sentiment was stamped using a light blue similar to the cardstock. The sentiment is hard to read, but I didn't want to use a really dark ink like black so I went with the light blue. The layout for the card is based on the current Freshly Made Sketches so I will be posting it there, as well.   Also posting this to the current SSS Wednesday challenge of Christmas to die for.

Hope you have a wonderful day and happy hopping...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, Close to My Heart light blue; Stamps:  PaperTrey Ink; Dies:  PaperTrey Ink and AJVD; Inks:  VersaMark watermark, Delicata Golden Glitz, Hero Arts Soft Pool

I just love the What the Doodle Snowflake but I still haven't used it for a card. Too many ideas and not enough time I suppose!

Beautiful card, Rosemary! Love using the blue & gold color combo with the snowflake--which I have & haven't yet opened, but you've inspired me! Hoping this next storm isn't as bad as they say it will be. Enjoy the weekend!
