Camouflaging Hello

Erin's-colors
February is a special month for me: my mom's BD was the 23rd, my BD (milestone this year!), my niece's BD, my first full month of semi-retirement, my Blog's anniversary (4 years) & PTI's anniversary (9 years)! There are lots of PTI challenges this week & I started by making a card with Erin's color combo for the DT Favorites challenge.  I don't have Lemon Tart ink, so used Memento Dandelion.  My stamps are from these PTI sets: Twig Wreath, Harvest Berries & Wonderful Words Hello.  I actually stamped a larger panel, but dropped the inked sentiment stamp on it!  
Changed the card design & I think it's better than my original plan anyway. Wonderful Words Hello die is used for the camouflage technique, a little border of Berry Sorbet cardstock is added & the panel is attached to a Classic Kraft card.  I used a few of my precious PTI Rainstones (a gift from a blogging friend) for embellishment. Not a traditional Valentine, but hopefully my blogging friend won't mind.  I'm also entering ATSM, Penny Black & More, The Playground, Stamping Sensations, Die Cut Divas & SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

  12. Such a stylish card Greta and the colours really pop from the Kraft, really should make an effort to use that more.

    Many thanks for joining our February themes at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges.

    And thanks for the inspiration on the card below, after I visited it the other day popped back as it made a perfect case for an anniversary card I needed.

  15. Fabulous card my friend and here's another coincidence... Not only is your BD the same as my DH but his daughter's BD is the 23rd ... This is getting very weird!
    PS sent your card and I hope it arrives in time

  25. This is so pretty, and your inlaid hello is cool. I really like the smaller panel and how much kraft is showing, so I guess your dropped stamp was a happy accident. Great save.

    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Penny Black & More this month.
