Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge

Blog-hop-logo
Blog HopHurray--it's PTI Blog Hop Day! I absolutely love the inspiration this month with black, kraft, green & pine cones.  Don't think I've ever used this color combo, but I will again.  Ended up with an anniversary card for my sister & BIL's 40th anniversary which is next month.  Yes, I did already make a card, but I'll save it for Valentine's Day.
That's because I ended up with a pocket where I can put the check we're giving them.  A sweet blogging friend gave me the PTI Monthly Moments Journal Card Pocket #1 since it has a little flaw & she got a replacement. Glad I finally gave it a try. The leaves from Turning a New Leaf are die cut from New Leaf cardstock & stamped in Mint Julep.  The sentiment from Don't Forget to Write is white embossed, a few Nuvo clear drops were added & a twine bow was tied onto the leaves.  Hard to see, but the embossing folder actually has tiny hearts where the lines intersect.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with DiesThe Playground, SSS Wednesday & SSS Work it Wednesday.  There's always a ton of inspiration in the hops, so I'm off to check it out.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

  6. Perfect anniversary card, Greta! The black and white twine bow coordinates very well with your embossed sentiment. Can't wait to try New Leaf stamped with Mint Julep to see in IRL as it looks great on your leaves.
