Pulling Out Some Older Sets

I dusted off my PTI Out of the Box set to make the focal point on this card.  I had a lot of trouble previously with the solid images.   I think part of the problem is the palette hybrid ink.  Here I switched to some chalk ink and both my polka dots and my square flower image came out great.  I think the ink is by MME...  It came in a container of about 9 pads, in a circle.  I got it from Bev at Precious Scraps.  The ink does not list a color name and of course I ripped the over wrap off long ago.  The base is Kraft, the scalloped square is ripe avocado.  The ribbon is from American Crafts and I got it for a steal at Big Lots.  I love when I hit Big Lots on just the right day.  Some cute little dew drops finish it off.  I got those at Ellen Hutson's store.  She has every dew drop you could ever want.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a fabulous Monday!
