Best one yet


I finally got a chance to use my new PTI set Turning a New Leaf. First, my base card is Dark Chocolate with a layer of Aqua Mist, then I used my medium scallop die on some Ripe Avocado card stock and patterned paper from October Afternoon's Farm Fresh 8 x 8 pad. Next I tore a page from my handy dandy old book, sponged the edges with Vintage Touch ink and used my notebook punch on the edge. Then, I stamped the image on Rustic Cream card stock with Ripe Avocado ink and cut it out. Finally, I tied on some Summer Sunrise grosgrain ribbon, added a punched out flower and button, and stamped the sentiment--from Signature Greetings--in Dark Chocolate and it was done. I'm liking it.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll have a brand new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge for you tomorrow :)
