Papertrey Ink Blog Hop-July

Hi friends,
Today I'm participating in PTI's Blog Hop! Mission: Text Integration. Oooh, tough assignment since I don't have those PTI stamps in my stash. I'm sure after I see what you have created, I'll have to add those
to my list! Well, let's get on with the deets, shall we...

Here's my card:
I used the Cuttlebug Script Embossing Folder as the background image. I was going for a love letter of days of old- kind of look. I tore the edges & inked around them and rubbed the ink pad over the embossed script.

Here's a closer look at the beautiful bloom:

I stamped it 3 times (with vintage cream on scarlet jewel), cut it out, & layered it with foam tape in between. (luuuuv this stamp set!) It kinda looks like an orchid to me. Maybe because I love orchids & I want it to look like that!

Here's a side view of the layers:

I think Scarlet Jewel & Ripe Avocado are a knockout color combo! The sentiment "It's been too long" comes from the Everyday Button Bits set. I punched it out with the word window punch.

Mission Status: Complete

BUT...do you think this was mission accomplished? I sure hope you do! Thanks for hopping by! I'm off to a new mission-- find my paper snips under all this craft mess!-- Gotta go!
