PTI Create along - July 2015

I love this idea - there is so much inspiration on the PTI blog during release countdowns that so much of it is forgotten, or I immediately obsess on what I can make with the new sets, rather than what I already have (not sure how this works as a sales tactic ladies!)
Anyway, this card is for the first Create along with us Challenge at Papertrey Ink.

Maile Belles made this card using one of the patterned papers from the Vintage linens set, and I loved the white on red combination.
Now I'd love recommendations for a good, white detail embossing powder as the one I used certainly isn't great, but you can see what I was going for. The roses are from PTI "the sweet life" and the sentiment is from PTI "flower favourites"

Here is a card I made from the sketch at Freshly made sketches this week.

I just got this set from Avery Elle and couldn't wait to use this little guy!
He's coloured using pumice stone distress ink and the sentiment is PTI "super swoosh"

MIM #217

A card for this weeks Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink
The challenge was to make your own stamped border. I used a couple of dies from the Garden Gild set to make this.
I used my much ignored texture paste and a TH stencil to make the harlequin pattern on the panel and added a plain white strip as a demarcation. I started out with green leaves but decided I liked the white-on-white better.
