Party Time

Blog-hop-inspirationI always try to participate in the monthly PTI Blog Hops.  My tilted elements are the background diamonds & the little tag.  I stamped an old bg stamp I'd forgotten about in Versamark ink & then rubbed on brown chalk & inked the edges with Distress Ink tea dye.  A strip of burlap was attached with some threads (also at an angle) removed from each end. The flower from Rosie Posie is stamped in Versamark & then rubbed with Pearl Ex Salmon Pink.  Then I stamped the image from RP Step 2 & rubbed it with Pearl Ex Brilliant Yellow.  The same method is used for the center of the flower.  The stem is done with Pearl Ex Spring Green.  Spellbinders Labels 18 was just the right shape.  The little tag & sentiment are from Tiny Tags, which I'd never inked.  The flower & background panel are mounted with foam tape.  I'm entering this card into PTI MIMDie Cut Divas & Passion for Papertrey challenges.  Back to work today, but I'll be checking everyone's cards soon.  Enjoy the hop!
