MY FIRST PTI BLOG HOP!

Hi Cyber Girl Friends! This is my first PTI blog hop. The rules are quite simple. If you want to play along, all you need to do is create a project utilizing TEXT in some way, shape or form using at least one PTI product for the July Blog Hop. Can't get much easier than that! :) You know how I love to combine challenges when I can, so I made this blog hop "TEXT" card using the colors from this week's Color Throwdown #52 , (SU Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum & Chocolate Chip which I substituted with PTI's Spring Moss, Plum Pudding & Dark Chocolate) I loove making vintage-y distressed flowers using the technique I learned from Dawn McVey as well as stamping on the flower & leaves. Thanks for stopping by! Be Sweet!

Ingredients Used:

Paper: PTI Spring Moss, Plum Pudding, Dark Chocolate, SU Whisper White

Ink: SU Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Chocolate Chip

Stamps: PTI Spiral Bouquet, Simple Little Things, Flourishes

Sprinkles: EK Success flower punches, SU distressing tool, Making Memories hardware, Offray ribbon, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF
