My First PTI Card!

I ordered my first set from papertreyink and received it before Christmas, and I finally had a chance to play with it. I love their stamps! Both the style and quality. Now, don't worry, I am still an SU girl, but it's fun to see what else is out there sometimes. Helps keep the creative juices flowing!

I started with a base of lavender lace and stamped the Polka Dot background in lavender ink. The olive layer is a scalloped rectangle nestability, and the pumpkin and white layers are regular rectangle nestabilities. I dry embossed a border on the white square, but you can't really see it in the picture. I stamped the flowers in lavender, olive, and pumpkin, adding a chocolate center and topping them off with some clear page pebbles my friend Krystie sent me. I stamped the sentiment in the upper left corner, added some chocolate ribbon, and put the whole thing together. I can't wait to play with this set some more!

Supplies: stamps - Paper Tray (PTI) paper - lavender lace, old olive, pumpkin pie, whisper white ink - lavender lace, old olive, pumpkin pie, chocolate chip acc - chocolate grosgrain, dimensionals, scallop and regular rectangle nestabilities
