So Grateful

Please scroll down for my DeNami Blog Hop post.

This week's PTI MIM challenge is to use a single stamp for multiple layers.  I used that technique quite often when I started stamping.  The only PTI stamp set I have that would work is Lovely Layers. 
The small image is clear embossed on Bo-Bunny papers in 2 shades of green & 2 shades of pink.  I fussy cut the sections & layered them together. The dies from the same set were used to cut the green papers for the bottom 2 layers. MFT wavy border die was used on the dark pink paper & a sentiment from the same set was stamped on the light pink. Debated about adding texture to the card front, but I really like it plain as a backdrop for these pretty images & papers. 

Freshly Made Sketches is a fairly new challenge for me & one I really am enjoying. This sketch is so versatile I know I'll use it many times.  Snippets of paper make this eligible for Pixies Snippets Playground. Glad to have another card ready to send to a friend for no particular reason. Thanks for your visit & sweet comments.
