Papertrey Ink 8th Anniversary Challenge

Hello friends!

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend! It is supposed to get up to 70 degrees today! That's hard to believe this time of year! Before I took the girl and the dogs on a long walk, I had to get in the craft room and make a card! 

I couldn't resist playing along with some of the Papertrey Ink challenges going on right now for their 8th anniversary celebration. 

For this first one, there are sketches and color schemes to chose from.

I chose this sketch:

And this color scheme:

And here's what I came up with!

Pretty simple card here with mostly dies and just one stamp set. I used some Wink of Stella on the Shine die. Do you know this is the first time ever I have used Wind of Stella?? I bought a pen several months ago, because everyone was using them, and I wanted to be cool too, but when I got it, I threw it in a drawer and totally forgot about it! So when I looked at that word "shine" I thought, "wish I had some shine to put on it" and then it popped in my head! I have some shine! haha! That's fun stuff! 

PTI Supplies used:
Happy Harlequin stamp set
Button Stacks dies
Bitty Button Stacks dies
Songbirds dies
Beautiful Blooms dies
Cardstock in the colors of the sketch above

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hope you have an enjoyable weekend!
