PTI Peeps Challenge #6

Late, but done! Signed sealed and on it's way to Florida. From conception to completion, this card underwent so many changes it doesn't resemble anything I started with. Now it looks like this by Barbara of Paper Pursuits. It's going to my 93 year old MIL and I hope she likes it. She's such a sweetie. I'm sure she will.

Quilter's Sampler was the first set I ordered from PTI in January '09 and I made my first stamped cards with it. Here I used one of the sentiments. For the background design I also used one of my older sets, Background Basics: Retro. I had only used one of the stamps in that set. I added the small flower and leaf from Delightful Dahlias. You might have to hunt for the bling. It's some Star Dust Stickles in the flower center. Inside I stamped the flower and then stamped over it with the Sentiment from Delightful Dahlias. I added the Dahlia & leaf on the enveloped.



Hope you liked it. Off to see if I can catch up on the next challenge. Thanks for dropping by.

What a lovely card! I like your dahlia and see you have stamped inside and on the envy. Love your idea of placing it behind the sentiment! I'm sure your MIL will love this.

This is sooooo pretty! I love the stamped squares mixed with the soft flower and that gorgeous paper! I'm sure she will LOVE it! I really like the flower stamped over the sentiment - such a great detail!

I really like the polka dot ribbon behind the Dahlia.

I am sure she will like it as well. Now I'm doubly guilty, second time I"ve seen the dahlia set today and mine has yet to see ink. So pretty!
