PTI - Inlaid card challengs

At first I didn't think I had the right kind of die for this challenge-- I'm still new enough to card-making.   But I came across the PTI Birthday Trio and remembered that my oldest daughter's birthday is coming up--  one of those where one would prefer to be eternally "39" as my mom used to say!  The paper is a fun one from Graphic 45 --Bohemian Bazaar.  Love the colors!  It turned out great.

More leaves!  The leaves that I ordered from PTI arrived yesterday.  The fun was in using multiple inks on them-- Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz, Canyon Clay and some Harvest Gold. The colors were so pretty that they really didn't need anything else... Just a couple of sparkly dewdrops!  (All from PTI)

Had to try it!  I added dimension by stamping more leaves, heat embossing them with clear embossing powder, fussy cutting the tiny things and adding some glitter.  Painstaking but what a difference!  That's why challenges are so fun!

Thank you wreath

The PTI Make It Monday challenge was to make a wreath from leaves.  And the ones I actually ordered last week haven't arrived yet-- but using the smaller leaves from Polka Got Parade (PTI) worked just fine!  I used PTIs Basket of Blessing for the sentiment with orange zest, pure poppy and raspberry fizz for an ombré effect-- card base is scarlet jewel.  I've been loving that cranberry color for fall!
