Birthday Card













Here's my card for today's PTI stripes challenge & one of the color & sketch inspirations.  I used PTI Harvest Berries & Heart to Heart 2.  The stripes are made with an old 8 1/2 x 11 stencil using these inks: Gathered Twigs, Toffee Crunch, Classic Kraft, Love Letter & Rhubarb Stalk.  The panel was embossed with PTI Linen & Canvas Impression Plate to give some texture. I'd like to use this for a guy's card if I can improve it a bit.  
I think the sentiment needs to be embossed or maybe add some twine. More storms coming for a lot of us--stay safe & warm. Your visit is always appreciated. Also entering SSS Monday.

  8. I do like this combination of stripes and ginkgo leaves for a masculine card Greta! I love how you embossed the panel with that particular folder- gives it some nice texture! We're hoping this next Nor'easter misses our part of the state- we are all weary of this weather:(
