Here is my regular card for the PTI swap I'm in over on SCS, hosted by the wonderful Banu. I hosted the last round, and one of the swappers, Tree, sent me a bunch of this snazzy PTI patterned paper. Then I saw a wonderful sketch on p. 22 of the July-August issue of Papercrafts and it just spoke to me, and told me to use this paper! I stitched around the bottom panel on my sewing machine with black thread, used nesties and my cricut for the scallop circle and circle, and Everyday Button Bits and Mega Mixed Messages for the focal point. I used my Old Olive marker to ink up just 2 of the stems, punched flowers out of Pure Poppy (PTI) and Baja Breeze (SU), which seems to be a reasonable match for the blue in the DP, which I believe is Hawaiian Shores. It's not perfect, but close. Because I was too lazy to get out my DMC floss, I just used a black permanent marker and a white gel pen to draw the "thread" on my buttons. Ribbon is SU Kiwi Kiss. This is a very loud and proud card, not surprising for this color junkie! I thought it would make a good get well card. Hope everyone is having a great day and getting some stamping in!
