I really needed a break from getting ready for company & then I found out they're coming 1 day later than planned. That was all the excuse I needed to make a card! I missed PTI MIM & Merry Monday last week--2 of my favorite challenges. Fortunately I was able to combine them in this card. I don't have too many PTI dies & nothing like the tree Melissa used. Mat Stack 3 & the smallest die from Snowflake Flurries worked--actually I really like it. Even though the snowflake images are modern I think using the challenge colors of cream, tan (kraft) & brown with inking the edges does give a rustic look.
I didn't want to add another color, but wanted a bit of sparkle. Platinum Stickles, which I never use, did the trick. I used some cardstock scraps so will enter over at Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by my blog. I really appreciate it.
