Papertrey Ink's Anniversary Day 13 Contest



If you haven't had an opportunity to check out Papertrey Ink's blog lately, you've missed so much fun. Although my name hasn't been selected to win a fabulous prize PTI has given away this month, I'm still giving it my best shot to win today's contest. Nichole has challenged her readers to create a card using a floral embellishment and an acetate sheet to share with another crafter. The first one I made (this morning) took forever to finish and when I began to post on the blog, I realized, after reading Nichole's blog again, that the card and embellishments were wrong (the cupcake stamps were used and they turned out cute, too :-) So, after lunch I went back to the drawing table and created something that didn't require as much time, but looked good enough to submit for the contest. The flowers were die cut and dry embossed; glitter was applied to vintage cream buttons making up the center. The card is being sent to a very sweet crafty friend; the cupcake one will go to another "sweet" crafty friend. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look today and if you have time, check out PTI's blog and enter your own design to win a nice prize.
