Life is good!


Well, the PTI blog hop is in a few days (the 25th to be exact) and the challenge this month is to use text in some way on our creations. So I have been doing some experimenting. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I absolutely love this card! I was thinking about using it for my blog hop entry but I came up with another idea to use. I was playing around with the rock and roll technique and hit on inking up the flower in Berry Sorbet and rolling the edges in Pure Poppy. This is a gorgeous color combo--I'm sure I'm not the first to think of it LOL! The set is Life by PTI designed by Lisa Johnson. BG is Background Basics Text Style in Pure Poppy on Berry Sorbet CS, ribbon is Pure Poppy. Stem and leaf are inked with New Leaf, black doo-dads are from K & Co, bought a long time ago, don't know if they still make them. Nesties used for layers. Butterfly is a Martha Stewart Punch, with the text BG in red on berry sorbet. Rock and rolled the word "Life" as well.


This card is very similar to the first, a little simpler. Flower is done the same way, DP is Bitty Dots by PTI, scallop border punch by SU. Ribbon is black organdy, SU retired.
I have been having a lot of fun playing with all my PTI sets lately; I've been so busy recently I haven't had much time to stamp, but lots of ideas floating around in my head. Finally got a chance to put some together. Have a great day!
