July Blog Hop with PTI

Edited to upload a photo of the card that I "cannibalized" to make my blog hop card.





Have you ever?
Cannibalized a card to get the product you need to make another?
That is exactly what I had to do tonight to make a card for PTI July Blog Hop. I was so inspired I had to look around once again and find some vellum. For our 10th wedding anniversary we renewed our wedding vows and I made the invitations all 100 plus had this swirl vellum on the front so this is what I used to layer over the Guidelines DP. I found some scraps to stamp the flower on then cut it out.

Below is the card that I used the Vellum off of...


Product list...

PTI Guidelines DP
PTI Plum pudding ink, ribbon and card stock
SU Old Olive card stock
