PTI Pink Sunrise Birthday



I didn't have much time after work tonight to put this card together, so it's very plain and simple. I liked the colors in Dawn's color palette on Nichole's blog today, so I picked that one to work with. I don't have all the PTI colors, so I tried to pick some colors that came close to what was in the palette.

Dawn's colors were Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise, and Dark Chocolate. The only color I have here is the Dark Chocolate (ink, cardstock, and ribbon). I used Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, and Summer Sun for my substitute colors. There's no real trick to making this card - just sponge the color on, then stamp the silhouette flowers with the dark brown ink. Silhouette stamps are a passion of mine - I'm always on the lookout for gorgeous silhouettes. These are from PTI's Life stamp set, and I admit, this is probably the first time I have inked it up! Ack! Bad PTI-er!

Now I have to go take care of some laundry and see if I can find some chocolate stashed around here somewhere. :-) Happy stamping!
