Papertrey Ink - Create with us

Papertrey Ink had their April release this week.  They also had their Create with us challenge instead of their normal Make it Monday which gives more autonomy with so many design team members creations to choose from. 
Here is the link PTI
I just fell in love with this particular design because of the shadows.  It definitely helped me decide to purchase this new stamp set by Dawn McVey.  Isn't it lovely?

Here is my creation.

My leaves are a little bit darker and I am wondering if she stamped off with them first. 

PTI stamps - Bold Blossoms, Happiness in bloom and Meadow Greens
PTI ink - Smokey Shadow, Summer Sunrise, Bright Buttercup and Soft Stone

Thank you for stopping by!

Papertrey Ink - 10 yr celebration

Hope you are enjoying a relaxing Sunday.  The clocks sprang forward today but our weather is going to go back to winter starting tonight all the way until sometime Tuesday afternoon.  You see we have not had any measurable snow here since December.  Lots of ice and rain but no snow.  I might have to stay home from work :)

Today I made a card for my nephew and his wife for their wedding anniversary this coming Friday.  The challenge was to make a matching envelope for your card design.  I absolutely love how this turned out and I hope they do too.

Here is a close up to show the tulle clearer.  You can see the shimmer a bit better too.

You can join in the fun here.

PTI Make it Monday

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend.  I just had a yummy sushi lunch with my son and that just made my day. 
I finished this card that I started when I was home sick with a cold on Monday.
I really like how it turned out except that the vellum slipped a little so my sewing at the top is not exactly straight.  I vowed to like my imperfection and move on.  Here is my card:

I hope you had time to create this weekend as well.
