PTI MIM #154

I really need to get better at this method, I have so many cards that I mail.  But I just can't help myself, I almost always add some bling or layered flowers.  Any way, this is my card.  I also used the Linen & Canvas impression plate, but that really did not show up in my photo.  Hope you had fun with the challenge too.

Most everything was PTI - Stamps: Rosie Posie, Beautiful Blessings, Distressed Stripes, Beautiful Butterflies.  Cardstock: rustic cream, simply chartreuse.  Ink: simply chartreuse, autumn rose, melon berry, harvest gold.  Impression Plate: Linen & Canvas.  Other: Colorbox wild hare and Memento tuxedo black.

Wishing you a good day.

Celebrating an Anniversary..........

I think the most fun card is the one that celebrates an event or milestone.  We have so many options in layouts and stamps that are so wonderful it can be overwhelming to get started.  In those times I have to stop and decide what I want my card say. 

Most of my cards are fairly transparent, with the sentiment displayed on the front of the card.  These cards are usually blank inside so that I can write a personal message. Oh... does any one actually write personal messages anymore, I might be alone in this idea, but wouldn't you love to receive a handwritten card. 

I forgot to take a picture of the card before mailing (fairly normal problem for me due to the fact that I'm running late to get it mailed) but my sister in law came to the rescue sharing this photo. 

I think almost everything was papertreyink. except for the ink and the glossy accents that was used on the champagne glasses.  The photo looks a little dark but the card stock is Papertrey Ink Fine Linen with a True Black frame and Rustic Cream glasses  The stamps and dies are from Propose A Toast and Beautiful Butterflies  

Wishing you a good day.
