thanks for everything...PTI December Blog Hop 47

Mona Pendleton | Friday, December 26, 2014 @ 8:44 AM | ,

 Hi there! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season! Today I am joining along with the PTI Blog Hop. The challenge is to incorporate both silver and gold within your project.
I made a rather clean and simple collection of thank you cards that will be sent out today thanking my friends and family for the wonderful Christmas gifts. I pulled out one of my favorite PTI stamp sets and coordinating dies ~ Pretty Peonies ~ the Anniversary set which dates back to 2012! 
To create these cards, I stamped the pretty Peony and leaves using various inks on the coordinating die cuts:

The labels were stamped and embossed using gold embossing powder:
A piece of dry embossed cardstock was used to add a bit of dimension to break up all the white space:
Then all were completed with a simple ribbon bow:

 For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current MOJO Monday sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ happy hopping!
Be Sweet ;)
