Papertrey Ink Thank You card.

Hi everyone,

Wow, 2 posts in a day You can tell I had a day to myself for a change, and I bet you can guess how I've been spending it. Its the Make it Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink and the challenge is to use a distressing technique which is not my style really so I thought I'd have a go.



I used a Dee Gruenig blossom stamp for the focal image, simply stamped in Raspberry Fizz ink on PTI white card along with a sentiment from my favourite PTI Signature Greetings set. I then sponged around the card with the raspberry ink and  distressed the edges with my scissors as Lisa did in the video. I finally matted it onto raspberry fizz card and finished it off with raspberry fizz ribbon.

Well I promised my husband a roast chicken dinner on his his return so I must get me to the kitchen!

Thanks for looking.
Hugs
