PTI January Blog Hop

 **This is my second blog hop today so scroll down to see the March of the Snowmen Blog hop!**

Welcome to PTI's January Blog Hop!


Today our challenge was to use a stamp set we haven't inked up yet or one that was collecting dust! I had to pull out Friends till the End! I HAD to have this set and am so sad to say I haven't done much with it yet! But it is still on my list of favorites!

Here is my card....

The ruffle I made with some sheer wire edge ribbon! I used Nicole's technique for adding some white distressing to the edge of the Melon Berry card stock! Such a pretty effect!
