PTI September blog hop - Happy Birthday

Hi everyone - it's been ages since I participated in the monthly Papertrey, Ink blog hops. I really liked the inspiration photo this time around and even managed to use one of the provided sketches.

All cardstock and stamps are from PTI.

Ended up going with the most dominate colors in the photo as my combo. I used markers to color the tops of the flower found in the set "Life" to stamp beneath the Happy Birthday sentiment. Then continued them on the enchanted evening cardstock below using Versamark ink.

I colored white satin ribbon with a N2 Copic marker to pick up the grey in the picture. Then added some tiny silver pearls on both ends to add a bit of interest.

Scalloped die is from Lifestyle crafts and the stitched rectangle is from Lil' Inker Designs.

That's it for today! Thanks for dropping by!
