Belated PTI Blog Hop

I'm a week late but I had planned a card for the last PTI blog hop that I didn't get made up in time.

I wasn't very comfortable with the color palette. I went back and forth with what colors were going to go where. Not completely happy with the result but it's rare that I don't post my flubs. ;) Papercrafting is a learning experience for me!

I die cut the Sending You frame out of Harvest Gold cardstock and then stamped the white card base with Background Basics: Woodgrain (Summer Sunrise ink) and Background Basics: Text Style II (Melon Berry ink). I die cut Turning a New Leaf out of Simply Chartreuse cardstock and the rolled flowers out of Bitty Dot Basics patterned paper. The sentiment, from Botanical Silhouettes, was stamped with Berry Sorbet ink.

I tried my hand at white gel pen faux stitched borders. While I'm not that good at it, it did improve the card.

Thanks for peeking!
