Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

This month's PTI chanllenge was, "Touch of Gold". All the details are on Nicole Heady's blog. Here is the photo inspiration:

Boy, I woke up this morning with this card in my head and couldn't wait to create it when I got home from work. It is rare that an idea for a card that is in my head turns out as nicely as this one.

Super easy too! I was done in 20 minutes flat. That is also really rare! I love my new chevron die from PTI, it just arrived in the mail late last week. This was the first chance I got to play with it. Such a great purchase. I have a feeling I'll be using this all the time.

The flower is from My favorite Things (MFT). You've seen it before on the wreath I made for my mother in-law for mother's day using felt, click here for more details. I love this flower die! It was A bit expensive but worth every penny. It makes for a great "wow factor".

I embossed "hello there" using some gold embossing power on some vellum to finish the card and tie it to the gold background paper. I hope you enjoyed my spin on this challenge. If so, click through the rest of my site.
I'll be back soon and as promised it will be with details from my sister's bridal shower!


  1. Love your card! Aren't those MFT flower dies the best? I'm a pretty loyal PTI gal, but you can't beat those rolled roses. Is your sentiment on double ended banners or the new sketched ones? Super cute. Pinning for later :)

    1. Yes! I love the MFT flower dies. You're right, I'm also pretty loyal to PTI but I LOVE MFT's flower dies. My sentiment is on the double ended banner and I just trimmed it short. Thanks for coming by!

  2. Beautiful card! Gorgeous flower too!

  3. Such a beautiful card...love the colors together! Your flower is stunning. I love the coverplate too and will be adding one to my next order...thanks for more inspiration on how to use it, Ericka.

  4. LOVE this! Every element shines but they all work together beautifully.
