PTI 10th Anniversary Day 3 Favorite Florals

A card for day 3 Favorite Florals at PTI 
I have seen some beautiful cards by my friend Marcia using these beautiful tulips and thought I need to use that stamp set.  Not sure why I have not made very many cards with this set.  So I used it with Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise and a little Terracotta Tile.  I was just trying to add a little of the TT on the edges and got a bit in the enter.  Was not about to start over.  I struggled all morning with this card.  I also liked Melissa's card using the gingham on the side.  That is gingham along the AE scalloped  border die. And three PPP sequins over a couple of boo boo's.
The jar is made from PTI's Diagonal stripe vellum.

Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Monday #239 with Marcia & CAS Mix Up Smooshing

This week join us this week at Merry Monday with Marcia's challenge to add Copper/Bronze, Gold & Turquoise to your card.

Loll made a comment on my MM post and noticed that I used smooshing on my ornaments so was able to link up to CAS Mix Up Challenge.  I smooshed using Inka Gold & Turquoise. I also embossed, used dies and stamped.

I struggled with the copper/bronze but then finally found some brads in my stash that I hardly (never) use anymore.
PTI's Holiday Greens Border embossed in gold,  SOL Ornaments 4 Christmas with Inka Gold and some Turquoise.  PTI's A Thrill of Hope, Vintage Cream cardstock
