PTI: Dress Up Inspiration

"Chevron" by shannonmarie-94 on Polyvore:

PTI: Dress Up Inspiration. We were to choose something from our closet, or an image we liked and use it as our inspiration. I loved the combination of color, white and denim in this photo. 

I stamped PTI Background Basics: Chevron Stripes in a rainbow of colors. The flowers from PTI Ruby Rose were embossed with CTMH Silver Pearl embossing powder. The card base was stamped with SU! Canvas background stamp in versamark. 

PTI: Grab and Craft

For the Grab and Craft challenge, we had just five minutes to grab items from our craft supply, but needed to use all of them in a new card. I haven't had the chance to play with Everyday Button Bits yet (though I've had it a while) so I started there. I also found this fibrous paper buried in an old pile. I don't know where it came from, or how long I've had it, but it's high time I used it! The chalks I have also had forever, and rarely used. 

This card came together surprisingly easily! I love how Everyday Button Bits does all the hard work for you!
