Papertrey Ink Anniversary – Building Blocks Challenge

After a busy day yesterday for our Scout Banquet, I feel like I can barely function today.  The physical pain is so full and overwhelming.  So to cheer myself up, I took a few minutes to create something for today’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary Building Blocks of Design challenge. chose the following combination for me:

Color #1 – Pure Poppy
Color #2 – Berry Sorbet
Color #3 – Spring Moss
Neutral Color – White
Sketch – #5
Occasion – Birthday
Technique – Heat Embossing
Embellishment – Rhinestones
Fiber – Button Twine

And here is the result of that list:


This is the first time that my Reasons to Smile stamp set is seeing ink, and I’ve learned that I absolutely LOVE this little group of flowers!  This is one layering set that I can actually use fairly decently.  Except, I didn’t quite get my blooms right on top of their stems.  But it’s a miracle that my arms are working at all today, so let’s just be content with that, shall we?!

Though it took me 5 tries, the sentiment was heat embossed using Versamark and some red powder.  Not sure how I feel about the tilted panel concept, but I think I like the card overall.


Thanks for stopping by today. ;-)
