Papertrey Ink 9th Anniversary Celebration Day 10 & stamps & dies for sale

This is my second post for today.

I have another card for Papertrey Ink's 9th Anniversary Celebration.

The idea is that you have a challenge for each letter in your name.
I did my whole first name and the first initial of my last name.

L -- lean your sentiment at an angle
E -- incorporate an emboss resist technique
I -- use an impression plate
G -- add a touch of gold
H -- heat emboss an image or sentiment
P -- use pink on your project

I also decided to use 

Here's my card:

I used the Graceful Greetings stamp set and heat embossed my sentiment on an angle.
Over this, I applied some hawaiian shored ink with my Tim Holtz blending tool.
I stamped the flowers (also from Graceful Greetings) onto my card front
as well as on some coordinating diecuts.

I ran my panel through my diecutting machine with my woodgrain impression plate,
before adhering my diecuts.
I matted it all on a piece of aqua mist cardstock, which I substituted for the soft stone.

Before I go, I have some stamps & dies that aren't getting enough love from me
and would benefit from being in a new home.
The prices listed below include shipping to Canada or the US.
I'm willing to ship internationally, but you'll have to pay for the shipping.
