hello, sunshine

I received some new goodies from Papertrey Ink yesterday and decided to play with some of them, to make another card for this week's Make It Monday at PTI: mixing patterned papers.


I used PTI cardstock (stamper's select white, canyon clay), ink (dark chocolate, simply chartreuse, fine linen, aqua mist), stamps (on the farm, nativity silhouettes additions, think big favourites #15), impression plate (simple stripes) and dies (flipping out.) I also hunted through my scraps for Betsy's MIM challenge and chose some from different manufacturers: Crate Paper (flip flops), Fancy Pants (tone on tone green and stripes) and My Mind's Eye (Chevron).

Thanks for looking!
