PTI & HA

I have a couple projects to show you today.  First up is my tag for PTI MIM.  I only have 2 cover plates & really loved the look of Linda's tag using Garden Gild, so that's what I went with. The tags are cut with Mega Mat Stack 3 from Pure Poppy & Vellum. The black dots are Pico Embellisher & the sentiment is from Don't Forget to Write. 
May have gone a bit overboard spraying with Perfect Pearls, but I'm proud of myself for taking the time to actually attach one of my very old eyelets before adding the twine! Thinking this could work for Christmas or Valentine's Day.  I'm also entering ATSMCCCB & Inkspirational.


Next is my entry for ABNH where the theme is Pop of Color.  My sister & her hubby are celebrating their 40th anniversary this Fall. She prefers silver over gold & her favorite color is blue--which she used for her wedding.  This is my first time to use HA Love by Lia set given to my by a sweet blogging friend.  I wanted a simple, elegant card that my BIL would like as well as my sister. The heart was stamped in Delicata Shimmery Silver & I used faded jeans Distress Marker to add dots to some of the flower centers & to ink the sentiment from the same set.  The panel & mat are die cut with AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop dies--a gift from another sweet blogging friend.  I had just a snippet of the sheer, silver ribbon which I tied across the bottom. The panel is mounted with fun foam to a panel cut from a slightly grayed white cardstock which ties in with the ribbon & makes the heart panel stand out a bit more.  I really love how it turned out & hopefully they will, too.  I'm also entering Darnell's NBUS Challenge & The Playground.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
