PTI January Blog Hop

Well, here we go! I am going to participate in my first PTI Blog Hop today! How about that?! This month's challenge was to create your best birthday card. Here's what I came up with ...I started by stamping the Guide Lines grid in Dark Chocolate on the Vintage Cream CS and then used Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Fizz inks to create the pattern. The bottom is a strip of Dark Chocolate CS layered with a strip of Raspberry Fizz CS that was punched with a slit punch and hole puncher. I added some Raspberry Fizz twill and a sentiment from the Faux Ribbon set to finish it off.

Hope you like what I came up with - I really love this color combination and will definitely be using it again in the future! :-) Hope you all have a great evening blog hopping!
