PTI Anniversary Party (Day 1)

Do you know that Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 8th anniversary, there is a big party going on there, do check it out!


Day 1 challenge is to used one of the color scheme and one sketch from the DT inspiration. 

I am going with this color palette


and this sketch....



my focal point is a rose stamp from PTI Botanical Blocks


the PTI inks I used on the image are pink blush and kraft, after stamping and coloring the image, I add a layer as frame using PTI cardstock.


the word YOU is from a PTI thank you die, I trim away the word "thank" after die cut it with Melon berry cardstock.


I also create a textured background by stamping the cardstock with one of the stamp from PTI fair isle motifs stamp set. I intentionally leave the inside of the card blank so I can use whatever sentiment I need once I know who is the recipient of this card, there are a lot of useful lines I can use from the stamp set show in the picture next....



thanks for your well wishes for my last post, I am still sorting through a lot of things at the Singapore Club, meanwhile, I am trying to keep myself busy with things, my step son Andy is here, father and son went golfing in the day and we try to go out as much in the evening, this week, we went to...



and 



I always like Cirque du Soleil, although Mystere is not on the top of my Cirque shows list, but I would still give that a 7/10, and Jabbawockeez.... hmmmmm.... I only realized that I am OLD when I am sitting in the theater, I felt so out of place. LOL! well, loud music, street dancers are really not my things, I kind of just sit there and tried to hide behind others when they were trying to pick up people from the audience to make fun of....... : (
