Well finally I got around to taking some pictures! I have been really busy with school and with my kids but I have been crafting. Unfortunately I hadn't taken a picture of a darn thing lately! I have enough pics taken now to get the blog moving for at least this week and part of next week. I even found a notebook I had made for Dawn's color challenge, which is now long over! Oh well! For this card I pulled out a couple of PTI's sets: Giga guidelines, Guidelines 1, and Guidelines 2. These are some of my most favorite sets. Sometimes I just like to sit and build backgrounds on a blank piece of paper. For this background I used the gridlines cardstock from PTI. It makes building the background even easier. Everything is easier to line up. If you use a gridlined block its even better! I started with big Giga stamp in Spring Moss (original formula). Next I added in a tile from guidelines 2 in aqua mist (new formula). Finally I went back with a stamp from guidelines 1 in plum pudding. Next I stamped the sentiment from Giga Guidelines on some plum pudding cardstock that I had scalloped with my corner rounder. I added a layer of aqua mist bitty dots and some satin aqua mist ribbon. I added to that a plum pudding button tied on with cream twine. Everything is mounted to a Ripe Avocado base. It is so pretty IRL. I think it might be one of the ones I hoard! LOL!
