Life is Sweet


PTI-fast-food-4 

My weekend to work so unable to participate in much of the PTI Stamp-A-Faire, but I did get a card made for the PTI August Blog Hop. All 6 sketch & color combo options would be fun to use, but I knew immediately with time for only one card I had to choose the Blueberry Summer Smoothie.  Aren't the colors just divine?!  

I used a combination of stamps from PTI Rosie Posie & The Sweet Life.  I'd had my eye on the canvas/linen impression plate for ages & finally ordered it.  The subtle texture on the circle was just what I needed--gives interest without detracting from the bouquet.  Decided against adding ribbon & settled on just 3 white sequins for embellishments.  I'll use this for a birthday card--celebrating life. This is also my entry for the Something Sweet challenge at A Passion for Papertrey.  
Thanks so much for checking out my card & hope you get to enjoy the hop. That's what I'll be doing after work.

Edited to add: Thanks to my friend Carol, I'm also entering the current challenge at CAS on Sunday.
