Just Because

Oh wow. I had no idea that it has been so long since my last post. I have been creating so I hope to blog more frequently real soon. This card features Papertrey Ink's Year of Flowers: Violets set. I adore the images in this set. They are so easy and fun to paper piece which is what I did here. The papers are from the Pretty Pastels collection. PTI is releasing a new YOF set each month. March's was the Daffodil. It is equally cute! The card is, overall, pretty simple. The ribbon is Lavender Moon Swiss Dot and the sentiment is from Giga Guidelines stamped in Plum Pudding ink. To finish it off, I added a bit of fine glitter to the center of the Violet with my Quickie glue pen. I thank you for stopping by. It's almost 11 pm here in Virginia so I'm going to go finish Dead As A Doornail, the 5th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series (True Blood, anyone?), and then hit the hay. Nighty night! :)

Oooh, great use of PP to piece the violet Amanda! And the Plum ink looks really soft and pretty on kraft, I'll have to try that.
