PTI Anniversary ~ Best Wishes!

Hello! I have a fun card to share tonight using a cute sketch provided by Papertrey Ink.  You should stop by Nichole's blog to print out your copy of the sketches. So great to have on hand when those creative blocks creep in!!
I stated by stamping some PTI simple sunflowers on a strip of white cardstock using autumn rose ink, then adding a leftover felt die cut to the bottom of it. This pretty die cut is what you have left after cutting the  PTI heart border. And you also get a leftover tiny scalloped edge too. So really you have a three for one with the die. LOVE that!!! Next I die cut the fillabel frames additions #3, then satmped it with autumn rose ink. The sentiment (from the same set) is stamped in spring moss. These items were added to a white cardtock base covered with a limeade plaid panel from Lasting Impressions. I embellished the frame with an additional sunflower, a felt butterfly from the Love Lives Here die set and an assortment of PTI buttons.
In hindsight I think I should have reversed the placement of the butterfly and the additional sunflower. Oh well...next time!

One of my sister-in-laws just had eye surgery; so I'll send this out to her with best wishes for a speedy recovery! Thanks for taking a peek ~ Lisa

Oh Lisa, how beautiful this is! Those colors look marvelous together, and the flowers are perfect against that gingham background. I will have to try it with my Simple sunflower set--thanks for the inspiration!

The autumn rose color is a definite fav, Lisa, and I love how you used it here with the felt- YUMMY!! Perfect job with the sketch :)
And, yes, my blog photo is new and you are most certainly not losing your mind- ha!

I just LOVE the colors you used for this card! So, so pretty together. I am really starting to love my heart border die - I had no idea how fabulous it was until I started using it! LOL. ;-D

I love how you used the simple sunflower set for this. One of my favorite stamp sets ever. My best wishes, too, to your SIL for a speedy recovery on her surgery! ;-)

Beautiful card, Lisa! I love the colors. Your sister-in-law will love your card. I don't have that border die, but it's so cool that you get 3 for 1! I'll have to keep that in mind.
