I'm a Papertrey Princess!

Ever since I discovered the Papertrey Ink forum, I've been thinking about joining a blog group there. Well, this week, I noticed that the Papertrey Princesses had an opening, so I asked if I could join.

Here's my card for their latest challenge issued by Diane: create a card using just the outline of flowers.

At first, I didn't know what I was going to do, since I don't own any PTI flowers with an outline (oh! actually, as I typed this, I realized that the Flower Fusion set I have could have qualified! Oh well...) I remembered that when I'd gotten together with my friend, Susan, to stamp a couple of months ago, I'd played with her YOF: Roses set and I had stamped it three times on a piece of Aqua Mist cardstock, but had never made it into a card. So, I dug it out and used it to make this card:

I also made this card for this week's Papertry Ink's Make It Monday #22: Multi-colour stamping with ink refills.

I used PTI cardstock (Aqua Mist, Stamper's Select White), YOF: Roses, Tag Its #2, Postmarks & Botanical Silhouettes stamps sets, Tag Sale #3 die and twine. I also used a Hero Arts cling stamp & SU! patterned paper.

Thanks for looking!
