January Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!






Happy Thursday!  I have a card to share today for this month's PTI Blog Hop Challenge!




For my card I focused on several of the elements in the inspiration photo.   I started with some soft stone bitty big pattern paper.  I chose the large plaid pattern which I die cut using the largest of the stitched rectangle dies. To this I added the Mix and Mat:  Pretty Brackets die. stamped this frame using harvest gold, sweet blush, aqua mist, and spring rain inks Background Basics: Celestial Skies to mimic confetti. 



Next, I die cut and stamped the dogwood branch from Warm Regards stamp set. .  I love this set! I used PTI pale peony, hibiscus burst, berry sorbet, simply chartreuse, green parakeet, and prairie grass inks.  I layered two of the  die cut sprigs for added dimension and stability. Next, I add PTI spiral notebook page die in kraft and stamped repeatedly with the "happy birthday" from Birthday Strings Mini stamp set using PTI kraft ink. I added a die cut from Doily details die in aqua mist bitty big pattern paper.  




   I just had to add a couple of the small Brushed Birds stamp set.  I die cut and stamped both using PTI harvest gold, bright buttercup, and a touch of saffron spice for one and spring rain and blueberry sky for the other.  I die cut the sentiment strip using Wine Bottle Tag #2 die and stamped the sentiment from Never Enough Birthday stamp set.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

I am also playing along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!  I used the top row!




As always thanks so much for hopping by!
