PTI January blog hop...

Hello!!  Stopping in with a card for this month's PTI blog hop.  Nichole provided a beautiful and yummy inspiration photo and this is what I came up with.  I was inspired by the colors and used the PTI set Fresh Floral Wrap Ups. I have had this stamp set for ages and this is the first time using it!!  I die cut the images and then stamped them as you see.  To bring in the black background I used the PTI notebook die.  One of the cookie has a notebook paper look to it and so I thought using that die would be a nice touch.  Even though there aren't any polka dots in the inspiration photo I went with the tiny polka dot wrapper image and then echoed that with the polka dot background paper.  Finished off the card with the little tag and a bow tied using red twine. Super simple, but that it about all I can manage right now.    I will be adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.

Hope you have a wonderful day and happy hopping!!!
Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, PTI black; Teresa Collins patterned paper; Stamps and dies:  PaperTrey Ink; Inks:  Hero Arts, PTI and VersaFine; Hemptique hemp twine

Hey Rosygirl, do you ever do anything that's not awesome? I don't think so. Love this card! P.S. Are you on Instagram? Even though I'm trying to spend less time there, you're one person I would love to follow but I haven't been able to find you. :)
