{It's a PTI Floral Frenzy}



Good evening! I've had some camera issues, some computer issues, etc. so I'm in a mad dash to get my card posted. Here's some details on the card---*love* love* love* PTI Ripe Avocado & Dark Chocolate along with Vintage Cream. The stamp and flower are from my November Scarlet Lime Kit though I did deconstruct the flower to add a layer of an old book page :-) Love that trick. I ran down to my basement to find one I could live with cutting up--all in the name of creativity of course. The flower is made from a layer of cordoroy velvet, a crinkled piece of patterned paper, an old book page, and that kind of fabric that keeps rugs from slipping around. Don't you love my technical explanation, he he. I also used PTI Polka Dot Basics and my threading water punch. Enjoy the blog hop & Happy Thanksgiving!

Very cool! You know, I've thought about using that rubbery shelf liner with my punches but never got around to it. I'm going to have to try it out because it looks pretty neat on the card.
