Hi! Today I'm joining along with the PTI 11th anniversary day 7 challenge where the challenge is to create a project featuring dies only. I created a valentine's day card featuring a variety of die cuts including a sentiment made using dies from the PTI Wet Paint combined with the Wet Paint 11 collection. The heart was die cut using a double layered PTI Primitive Heart die cut with the bottom layer being white card stock and the top layer vellum: 
I stuffed the stitched heart with gold and white sequins then embellished with a homemade flower that was die cut using a PTI Beautiful Blooms die along with some die cut white PTI Fancy Foliage:
For color and theme inspiration, I'm joining along with the current  TIME OUT challenges which is to create a project inspired by the pretty photo shown below:
and for sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current TGIF challenges sketch challenge:
Up next is an 8" x 8" oil painting study featuring a couple of pears. I'm entering this painting in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge~Day 11:
I'm also joining along with the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

Your card is amazing. I love the contrast between the sentiment and the neutral colors of the rest of the card. The stitching around your heart adds such a lovely texture and hand-crafted look. Your luscious pear painting is also amazing. I always look at your paintings and wonder how you are able to create such vivid images with paint.
