I have made this card for my brother and sister in law (yes still on my Birthday thank you's!) follwing  A Passion For Papertrey - It's Elementary Challenge. I have chosen earth as my element and gone with flowers as they symbolise earth I feel. I have stamped the flowers from the PTI Modern Basics set out with Memeneto Grape Jelly ink and then stamped the stems (from a MFT set) and leaves using Memento Bamboo Leaves. I have then added a PTI Plum Pudding button to the largest flower with thread and rhinestones to the smaller ones. Sentiment (from the same set) stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I have mounted this panel with DB Lilac CS and added to a white card blank with 3d foam pads.

STAMPS: Papertrey Ink, My Favorite Things. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bamboo Leaves & Grape Jelly. CS: Craftwork Cards, Doodlebug Designs. EMBELLISHMENTS: We R Memeory Keepers floss, Papertrey Ink button, Doodlebug Designs Mini Jewels.

As you can see I am on a bit of a Papertrey Ink kick at the moment. I had ordered a few bits from there and they came about a week and a half ago and the order is still on my desk ... I wonder if I can use all the stuff before I put them away! Thanks for visiting.


  1. So rich and beautiful Michelle .... Don't know what we'd do without Papertrey Ink.
