Happy Friday!  Today I am playing along with PTI July Blog Hop Challenge.  This month's challenge is an inspiration piece.  

 I took inspiration from the colors, the button cards, the gingham pattern, the distressed background, and the thread.  I inked distressed everything with the PTI chamomile vintage ink.  I used rustic white card stock for the base.  I used the more rustic side to the  linen & canvas impression plate to play on the more vintage rustic feel of the inspiration piece.

I die cut the Phrase Play in kraft, rustic white, aqua mist, and pure poppy.  I layered and placed all the letters making sure to ink distress the edges of all the little pieces as well.  For the bottom sentiment panel I used the rustic white and stamped in red the basic background: gingham.  I used the larger of the patterns.  I thought the pattern was too vibrant so I cut a vellum piece to lay over to mute the gingham a bit.  I stamped the sentiment from the Phrase Play #1 in Palette noir black ink.   I decided to use some Tombow Aqua liquid glue to adhere this piece.  The water glue and red ink created almost a red highlighted effect behind the sentiment.  I actually liked this look so kept it.   I finished my card with some aqua and red thread and a few clear sequins for accenting.

As always thanks so much for hopping by!
