Happy Thursday...

Sorry this is coming in late. I sat down about an hour or so ago to write this up and then my boys needed my attention.

The week is almost over. I don't know if it is because I have family visiting or what but the weeks have been flying by.

This is my card and can you believe that it was actually made completely by scraps? I love it. That is why the card is such an odd shape. It measures 4 1/4" X 6 3/4".

The base card is PTI berry sorbet. I am not lucky enough to have gotten the PTI Guide Lines stamp set (I so need it). So I came up with the idea of using my scor-pal and scoring guide lines to make a background. I found a nice light gray cardstock (not sure of the brand) and scored every inch horizontal and vertical. From there I used PTI's anniversary stamp set and the flower from boxes, bags, and tags set. The cross stamp was stamped in palette brown and the flower was stamped using PTI berry sorbet ink.

The gray cardstock was mounted on some brown I had in my stash (it might be SU! but not sure). After mounting the two I took my ticket punch and punched the corners.

I used another piece of berry sorbet cardstock, stamped it with the sentiment from the anniversary set in palette brown. Took the bigger flower from boxes, bags and tags and stamped it using berry sorbet. I also used the ticket punch on that (I don't have a window punch so I just made the sentiment tag from scratch). I used the slit punch to pull the ribbon (Michael's ribbon) through the sentiment tag. I don't know if you can see but the ribbon does have brads (Joann's) in them to hold them together. The last thing I did was use my clear glitter pen and color in the centers of the flowers and traced the sentiment.

I hope you like it. I had fun making it. It wasn't my usual style but so fun and easy.

Hope you have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by!!!
