Whew! I made it just in time to share my creation for PTI's Make It Monday challenge. The challenge was to create something using a vellum sentiment strip. I didn't have any vellum so I had to run out to get a sheet from Michaels. I'm definitely going to add some to my shopping cart the next time I order from PTI. The quality of their vellum seems soooooo much better compared to the vellum that I used!
Anyway here's my card. I really, really, really wanted to use red ink for the couch because I love my red couch :) but I resisted and chose a color that I don't use often. It's PTI's Ripe Avocado & it's such a luscious green. It's definitely one of my favorite greens. I used the On My Couch stamp set & die for the focal images on this card. I stamped the pillows, cut them out, and propped them up using pop dots. Then I used a sliver of Basic Grey patterned paper underneath the vellum sentiment strip. It kinda looks like a pretty area rug doesn't it? I really wished I had some Ripe Avocado twine to add to the top portion of the card. If you know of a manufacturer who makes a twine that matches let me know!
Thanks for stopping by today!
