PTI - Make it Mondays Challenge

I just bought this April Sweet Pea Stamp set from PTI. I love the flower image. I guess it must be my longing for spring!
Here in Colorado spring is starting to make an appearance but it is more of a tease. Some snow, then sun, then snow again. But at least spring is coming!
Now on to the challenge. PTI's Make it Mondays challenge is to use some distressing on your card and I did that on the main flower image as well as the sentiment tag. I distressed those edges with my scissors. I also used some creamy caramel ink (SU) to distress the edges of the natural color cardstock from my stash. I used my scoring board to score some lines around my cardstock to make a border. I curled the doily, tore the vellum strip and used a MS punch for the bottom strip (it's light pink but I'm not sure if it really shows up in this picture). I attached a button (PTI) to some MS ribbon using embroidery floss. Then I stuck that on a mini wooden clothespin. The sentiment (PTI) is stamped in Old Olive (SU).
I hope my spring days are right around the corner! Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Great card! Pretty color combo.

  2. Very sweet! This is one of my fav PTI stamps.
    We are being teased here in Alabama too. IT can't decide what temp it wants to be. :)

  3. Gorgeous! I adore your sweetpeas. The purple color base of them is just divine.
