PTI Anniversary Challenge

(Please no side remarks about my blogging disappearance for the past few months.  I hope to be back more often.  Homeownership has certainly provided many stories worthy of writing about!)

I have finally got my scrap space put back together after moving it, twice.  I also did a lot of purging.  Well, I guess purging requires you to actually get rid of things.  I just put them in boxed in the back of my closet!

So when I was scoping out the amazing new things coming to Papertrey Ink on Nichole’s blog, I finally felt inspired and had a useable space.

6a00d8341c64e753ef0120a87022bb970b-450wi That is the challenge.  I was thrilled that my PTI forum name is “pdykstra” because I LOVE these colors!

After watching Nichole use the emboss resist technique earlier this week, I decided to try my hand at it.  Not nearly as dramatic, but am loving the subtle texture.

(Card number two, picture taken at night is reason for the difference in color.   I swear they are the same!)

I really did have fun making cards again.  It’s been too long.  Though my wallet has been mighty happy!
