PTI January Blog Hop Birthday Card



I'm so excited to see all your wonderful creations tonight!!! Nichole's challenge could not have been simpler, but for me it turned into a bit of a struggle. Sometimes I get an idea in my head & no matter what, it just will not fall into place! I had this grey metallic paper, embossing folder and Raspberry Fizz cardstock in my head for a while, thinking it would be a great combo, but none of my original ideas remained. I'm not sure if that's good or bad -- LOL! Thank you so much for stopping in; come again soon. Now it's time to clear the mess from my craft room and get ready to soak in all the birthday beauty out there in PTI Blog Hop land!!!
Paper: PTI's Raspberry Fizz CS; grey metallic & vellum from my stash
Stamp: PTI's Heartfelt Basics
Ink: PTI's Palette Noir
Embellishments: PTI's Raspberry Fizz Grosgrain Ribbon; Petaloo blossom; Sticko gems
Tools: Spellbeinders' Wizard & Long Rectangle Nesties; Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch
Card Size: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
