Friend for Life

I try not to miss PTI MIM & Amy's technique is beautiful!  Hate not to use all PTI stamps, but couldn't find one that would work in my stash. Finally tried (& tried!) this lovely Penny Black sentiment using PTI Harvest Gold & Summer Sunrise.  Not a great result, but think my friend will appreciate the card anyway.  
Love PTI's Harvest Berries which I stamped in the sparkle VersaMark on a kraft card.  Used my Mini Misti to stamp the die cut (worked great!) also with VersaMark & then added Pearl Ex Sparkle Gold which I've had for ages!  
I stacked it 4 high, tied on twine & attached it with foam tape. The PTI Blog Hop is coming right up & that's even more of a challenge for me--haha! I'm also entering Word Art Wednesday.

The neighbor's Cherry Blossoms are all on the ground now, but my favorite pink Rhododendron is so beautiful.  I do love Spring in Oregon!  Thanks so much for stopping by.
