PTI Make it Monday #188 ~ Stamping Ombre Backgrounds

I thought I won't be able to play along this week at PTI Make it Monday since I got home from our road trip late on Sunday and we supposed to leave for NYC early Monday morning, but the flight was delayed till 1 PM on Monday, so I got an extra 2 hours at home and whipped this up quickly before I leave for the airport.

The Challenge:



I created the background with PTI A Little Argyle Stamp Set using PTI inks Scarlet Jewel, Autumn Rose, Terracotta Tile, Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart and Pink Blush.


the dies I used are PTI Wonderful Words Birthday Die and Framed out #4 die


the little balloon came in the mail right in time just before I left




I should be home in a few hours to see my Papillon, I missed him soooooo much!

You never cease to amaze me with what you can whip up in a few hours delay. I'd be panicking about how my plans were messed up. Great card- lovely photo of Papi. I'm sure he welcomed you home with kisses.
