PTI Blog Hop-v.3

Here is my final submission for today, and somehow it's my favorite:




This card is totally not my style at ALL. It's so... simple. I usually like lots of layers and pearls and lace and probably a button with some twine on it... Not to mention that this color combo is not one that I would normally choose. But I got out my new Birds and Blooms anniversary set from PTI, because I was desperate to play with it, and I had a Kraft card base on my desk, and this card is what happened! The white letters really pop on that somewhat dull background with the help of some pop dots, cut extremely thin. (I am just in LOVE with the lines on those letters...so clean. They provide such a lovely foil for my exceptionally-girly projects!!) I needed to follow my "rule of three", so I added some white berries to the wreath with my Sakura white gel pen. A white 1/4" silk bow finished it off.

This one is definitely my favorite of the three that I made today, and it was a totally unexpected creation! I love it when that happens!!

I have a baby card swirling around in my head with the branch, nest, bird, and egg images that I can't wait to try out!! I need to finish a few baby shower projects before I can get that one going, though. I'm about 2/3 finished with one, but I haven't done anything but sketch out the second one. Hopefully, I'll get some time this week to work on them!

Thanks for dropping by (possibly again)!! :)

Card Stock: PTI Classic Kraft, white
