PTI January, 2010 Blog Hop: Total Package Challenge




For tonight's Total Package Blog Hop I used PTI's Giga Guide Lines, Sweet Blush CS and the Birthday Wishes sentiment on my card front, along with a houndstooth check patterned DP (source unknown) punched with my EK Success Border Punch (which name escapes me right now - wish they'd put them on the punch somewhere!) through which I laced Offray 1/8" soft pink ribbon.
On my inside I decided to use Spellbinders Fancy Tags for my sentiment "holder" and a Heartfelt Basics sentiment to complete the birthday greeting.
On my card back, I always add my PTI handmade by greeting and my initials (or Mom if it's for one of our children)! Here I've carried through the houndstooth patterned/punched paper for a little "punch"!!! ;-)
Thanks for stopping by tonight -- I sincerely appreciate it & can't wait to see what all you other hoppers have created!!!
