PTI August Blog Hop - it's a celebration

Hi everyone!
This is the color combo and sketch I chose to do for this months blog hop.



I used all the colors except fine linen - which just didn't work with what I had in mind. I'm not too fond of that color anyways....

Got out the crimper and added a bit of texture to the strips. At the last minute I decided to add the flowers but I wanted a bit of texture to them as well. I have an old Angel Co. striped back ground stamp that I used with Versamark and clear embossing powder after cutting them out. Once they cooled down, I added color using Faber Castell Gelatos.

I stacked them on top of each other using foam tape and then added the button for the center. Everything on this card is from PTI, except for the green button which is from American Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by!
