PTI Building Blocks Challenge

PTI had an interesting challenge today.  I used a dice to determine my "building blocks" which are Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, Soft Stone, Birthday, Inlaid Die Cuts, Buttons, Ribbon & Sketch #6.  I'm not positive if anything else is allowed, but hopefully also using white & black cardstock is OK along with floss to thread the button.  I would not have chosen to use gray with the other colors, so it's not my favorite card. PTI Linen & Canvas Impression Plate gives some texture to the black & a Cuttlebug embossing folder is used on the bottom of the card front.  My PTI stamps are The Sweet Life & Boutique Borders Birthday. I used some snippets, so I'm also entering this over at Pixie's Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Our snow has melted & now it's warmed up with rain.  Quite the winter, but we haven't had nearly the problems many of you continue to deal with.  Stay safe & warm.
