Happy Wednesday!  I had a chance to get crafty today.  I am using some of my new PTI goodies.  For my first card I am playing along with Simon Says Monday Challenge.  No Ordinary Paper.  I chose to use some mirrored gold card stock.  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.  Anything Goes!

I started with PTI stampers select base.  I die cut a ripe avocado panel.  I layered a linen die cut stitched rectangle.  I stamped and layered the Center Style:  Feminine die over the linen panel.  I layered a gold die cut doily die.  I grouped my Bitty Bouquets to the right of the gold doily.  I stamped and added the "Hello" from Graceful Greetings.   I finished with a few gold sequins.   

 For my second card I am playing along with this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge.  The challenge is "texture kissing" technique.   I am also playing along with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch.  I turned the sketch.

For my card I started with PTI stamper select white for card base.  I die cut royal velvet panel using PTI stitched rectangles. I die cut a pierced circle out of the center.  I layered the royal velvet panel using foam mounting tape.  I die cut another pierced circle using snow white linen card stock.  I stamped this circle with Watercolor Wonder stamping off once with aqua mist for a very subtle background.  I stamped the sentiment from Flower Favorites.  

I die cut Flower Favorites Iris flower.  I stamped the stems using spring moss and simply chartreuse inks.  I decided to use the texture kissing technique on the flower itself.  I inked the flower ins summer sunrise and kissed the small dotted background from Polka Dot Basics II.  I love how it turned out.  I decided to just use the technique on the summer sunrise petals.  I stamped the raspberry fizz normally.  I love the contrast of textures.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
