PTI Countdown Day 2

So this is a little late................ better late than never right. I was having computer issues! Sorry! This is my day 2 of my own little PTI release! This card features Out on a Limb. I debated about getting this set as I already had Take a Bough and they are so similar. But what really sold me was the sentiments in this set. It has beautiful sentiments. This card's sentiment is Every day is a Gift! I love that. I wish I could think like that every day! Anyways, the base is PTI stampers select - more to the border in a sec! The main image is stamped using pallet burnt umber then all the flowers and leaves I did using the INDIVIDUAL leaf and flower image. That is one of the reasons I LOVE Papertrey stamps. The versatility is endless. So I stamped the flowers in both sweet blush and berry sorbet and then the little outline leaf in spring moss. I made it really full of flowers like the dogwood trees here in spring. I can't wait for the dogwoods to bloom! This set with the pink flowers always reminds me of dogwoods! But I digress. The sentiment is up in the corner in spring moss. I also added some sparkle to the flowers by using my spica gelly roll stardust pen in the center and a line down each leaf. The image is matted in SU's choc chip which is the same color as Pallet's burnt umber - YAY! The border is the same colors and I just stamped before putting on the matted image. It even goes onto the back of the card a little. I've had this idea in my head for awhile and wasn't sure how it would turn out - but I LOVE it!!!! The ribbon is PTI satin ribbon in berry sorbet which is just yummmy! It is afixed to this card with about a half dozen large glue dots and several small ones as well. I am anal about getting the bow just so! Thanks for looking! Oh and since I know my friends are going to be fighting over this card - leave me a comment on this POST and I will draw to see who I send the card to! TFL! Come back for more tomorrow.
