PTI March 2011 Blog Hop

It is time for PTI March Blog Hop. The challenge this time was to use Embroidery Floss in a creative way. You can see the entire Participant list on Nichole's Blog.

Here is my card for this hop,

I used the Embroidery floss to decorate on of the doily dies and then kept the card simple by using a Signature Greeting for the sentiment. Adding the bigger doily as the background added some pizazz to the card.

Here is a close up of the decorated doily.

I am sponsoring the CPS sketch #210 this week. Please do check it out for a chance to win some ippity Stamps.

Here is card that I made using the CPS #210 sketch and the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger - A Citrus celebration.

I was totally inspired by the colors in the Tuesday Trigger Image. The beautiful White polka dotted Lime color and the Orange/Yellow Background.

Here is a close up of my card. I used a lime green card stock and stamped polka dots on it using PTI Polka Dots stamp set with PTI Fresh Snow Ink. Loved how this turned out.

Blue Butterfly

I did this card for the PTI Make It Monday Challenge #7 - to use colors on a non-neutral card stock. I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #182 (from a few weeks back I think) for this card.

I used stamped the butterfly image from PTI Butterfly dreams on PTI Aqua Mist Card stock and then colored it with Copics to create a gradient shading. I am in love with this Technique and will use it more often.

The image is from the PTI Anniversary Download tags and I used one of their new Doily Dies as well.
