PTI's 11th Anniversary Day 4 - A Floral Challenge

Hello friends.  Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 11th Anniversary with 10 days of fun and challenges, and todays challenge is a FLORAL challenge...YAY!!!


For this challenge I chose Brushed Blooms because I have only used it once, being a little intimidated about lining the images up.  Melissa Phillips used it on a beautiful card just a few days ago, so when I saw today's challenge, I decided I was going to get over my fear and get my MISTI out!  And it worked and I had FUN!!

 
I made a 4 bar card size (3 3/4 x 5 1/2) and added a strip of Aqua Mist DSP and a kraft Heart Border Die to the lower half.  (I chose those colors because in one of the write ups it was said that Aqua Mist and Kraft cardstock and inks were the most popular selling in PTI's 11 years of business!)  I also used some Aqua Mist to stencil the upper 2/3 of my card using the Modern Day Stencil Pack.  After stamping the main floral image, I fussy cut it out and adhered it to a Harvest Gold DSP Basic Bookmark #3 Die and then adhered that to my card base.  I finished by adding a seam binding ribbon and twine with a Tiny Tags die cut and a polka dotted button from my stash.

LOTS of BEAUTIFUL cards from the DT post to inspire you and lots more already in the gallery too, so check it all out right HERE and then play along for a chance at winning one of the prizes. 

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
