Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge

I've never been sorry I chose a career in nursing, but after more than 40 years I must admit I prefer cardmaking challenges to those at work--haha! I'm not planning to renew my license next year, but am continuing occasional shifts for now.  Yesterday was very busy, so I relaxed after dinner by making my card for the PTI February Blog Hop.  
Feb Blog Hop Inspiration
Today I had to run an errand out of town while it wasn't raining, so just now getting my post done.  I was reminded of my older stamps like Rosie Posie during the Past, Present & Future celebration.  Fun to use it again, along with the newer Rosie Posie Step 2.  The hexagon image was stamped on a Smokey Shadow panel in Brilliance Starlite Black.  I stamped the stem die cut in Delicata Golden Glitz & the fussy cut blossom was stamped in Amethyst Allure, Lavender Moon & the gold.  
Used Tiny Tags for the sentiment & left the gold thread ends longer than usual because I liked how it curled. Debated about adding something to the flower center, but decided against it this time.  Bet there's a big variety of projects in the gallery this month--enjoy the hop!  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  2. This is a beautiful card. I am determined this year to stop buying as much craft stuff and use the old stuff that is still amazing. These blog hops really help remind me of the goodies. Thanks for sharing.
