PTI February Blog Hop

Well, it's the 25th which means it's time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

This month's challenge is Sweet Spring.

Here's my card:


For my background, I used a Lil Inkers cover plate to make a mask
and applied some embossing paste.
Using my PTI Feather Finery stamps and dies, I added these to a banner
that I die cut using PTI's Get a Handle on It die and stamped using a stamp
from Reverse Confetti's Lots to Say stamp set.
A PTI button and twine finish it off.

Thanks for looking!

Leigh, I keep telling myself I don't need one for medium to add to my crafting options, and then you create this beauty with embossing paste. Now, of course, I want some too. We are such enablers, aren't we? This light and feathery card is stunning.
