Finally Decided To Try.....

Edited to add: I now realize that I stamped the basket upside down LOL! I will try to do better with these awesome stamps in the future hehe ; )
PTI!!! So I've been wanting to order from Papertrey Ink for a while and when I read that they would be at the CHA show I thought that would be the perfect time to try them out! I was fortunate to be able to attend the CHA show Friday and Saturday since it was here in Orlando, and I had a blast! I loved hanging out at the Splitcoast Stampers booth and I met so many awesome people that I see online everyday! I also loved the PTI booth and spent way too much moola there : ) I made this card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #32 or MTSC32. I used my new PTI cs Spring Moss and Aqua Mist (I ADORE these colors together...and seperately lol!) and some dp from the Everyday Blessings paper pack. The stamp is from the PTI set Vintage Picnic. This set is so cute and it comes with 5 different picnic baskets, and several different items to put in the basket for different holidays etc. It also comes with several sentiments, but I chose not to use any on this card. I colored it with my Copics, and used my Rectangle Nestabilities to cut it out. I also added some texture to my SU Real Red panel with my CB Swiss Dots Folder and added the PTI satin ribbon. I think I may be hooked! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful evening!

Stamps: PTI Vintage Picnic
Paper: PTI Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Everyday Blessings dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, White Gel Pen
Accessories: Sewing Machine, PTI Spring Moss ribbon, CB Swiss Dots Folder, Button from Joanns, PTI Twine, Rectangle Nestabilities, Dimensionals
