Just because...

This last PTI release was FULL of amazing new stamps and of course, LOTS of great samples by the DT! I was struck by the layout of THIS (first one in the post) card by Dawn and had to case it!   This card  was also inspired by the Card Patterns sketch #104

Here is my version....

After stamping the back with Text Style II, I distressed the whole piece of Rustic Cream with Tim Holtz Frayer Burlap and Fired Brick! This is a technique that I have used alot after seeing it on Jennifer McGuire's blog!

This new PTI die is so fun!  I cut out 6 and then ran them through with this Cuttlebug folder!  Again, I made my own ribbon with Copics and added some of my FAVE rose buds by Recollections! 

Here is the Card Patterns sketch....



So this is it for today!  So glad you stopped by!
