PTI Blog Hop: February 2015

My blog continues to be neglected. Not much crafting going on lately. Instead I have been spending time away from the cold cruising the Caribbean.  Now that I'm back I thought I would make a quick card for this month's Bog Hop at PTI.  The challenge is to create something based upon the inspiration photo below.


Blog Hop Inspiration

 My background was created using a stencil and inks on glossy paper. I'm still learning how to use my MISTI (most incredible stamp tool invented) with die cuts. It worked perfectly doing selective stamping with the sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. I'm volunteering at our hospital's gift shop, so I'l be blog hopping this evening. Enjoy!
