Thanks

Back from an exciting & tiring trip--more on that later.  We're glad to be out of the humidity, but had hoped the high temps would be gone. Hit 99 yesterday, so we didn't do much but relax & I made a card. Needed inspiration after not creating for so long & I got it from the PTI MIM video (texture kissing) & Becca's Birthday Mood Board.  I used the purple & teal color combo that Becca loves with PTI Lovely Layers & Ombre Builders. The inks are PTI Winter Wisteria & Tropical Teal. This is a mini card using PTI Mat Stack 3 for the card base which is splattered & dry embossed.  MFT Glitter Glaze provides the sparkle & shine.
Hard to tell, but the petals of the top layer of each blossom are slightly bent up.  I'll also enter Anything Goes at SSS Wednesday & die cutting at SSS Work It Wednesday.

  1. Awwww - Greta I love it!!! I popped by just to see what you were up to and this came up and I got the BIGGEST smile all over my face. I don't think you've even linked up yet! The shimmery big ol' petals on this bloom are GORGEOUS!!! Thank you SOOOo much for helping me to celebrate my birthday is such an amazing way. I just got back from a 5-day camping trip with my family too and so I feel your exhausted pain. It makes it even more extra special that you took time to play along with me. :)
