Make it Monday #3


Hello, friends!  Just popping in with a quick post tonight to share a card for PTI's Make it Monday challenge.  This week Dawn McVey challenged us to use glitter strips.  I haven't had a lot of time for challenges lately with my parents visiting and my daughter home on a school break, so I kept this pretty simple.
I love playing with different combinations of PTI's Mat Stack labels and other die cuts for a focal point, and the new Doily Details dies add another fun option.  I layered a Simply Chartreuse doily over Mat Stack 4, then added a circle stamped with a frame and sentiment from Tag-its #1.  Sweet and simple, but it's such a cheerful and bright card in person.

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted
Cardstock:  Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, white
Stamps:  Tag-its #1
Ink:  Clearsnap (Moss Green)
Tools:  Mat Stack 4, Doily Details, Limitless Layers dies
Accessories:  Martha Stewart (glittering tape), Jo-Ann (clear glitter)

Thanks for visiting tonight!  Have a great one!
