PTI March Blog Hop

This is my first time participating in the PTI Blog Hop!  This month, the challenge is to use sequins on your project.


I made a card for the challenge using Hello Sunshine.  I was inspired by the photo of the stars (upper right 2nd row) covered by all those beautiful sequins.  The dotted sun rays are embossed in Butter Zing embossing powder.  The remaining sun rays are stamped with Summer Sunrise.  Not having a good place for a sentiment, I channeled my inner Jess Witty and embossed the sentiment on a clear overlay in detail white embossing powder.  The PTI clouds die cuts are covered with iredescent white sequins purchased from Ellen Hutsen.


Making this short and sweet so both you and I can hop to the other blogs!

This is just gorgeous. Those embossed sun rays are so glittery, and I just adore how you did your sentiment. I should try to channel the DT sometime. It totally worked for you.

Stamping & embossing the sentiment on clear cardstock looks awesome. Love the glittery clouds too.

Jess, oops ...I mean, Linda:) this is just gorgeous! It looks like you put a lot of work into this and it was all worth it! Love the sentiment on the vellum, too.

This is so cool. Thanks for using a large image so I could appreciate all the detail. Your clouds remind me of that old 'sliver lining' saying, and the embossing on the rays is spot on. The shadowing on your sentiment is the perfect finishing detail to help your card shine. Thanks for sharing!

WOW, Jess made a big impact on you because this card is gorgeous. Great idea to let the sunrays show through by embossing your sentiment on clear c/s!

A lovely, radiant card for your first PTI Blog Hop! Very nice work. At first glance your card looks C&S, but upon closer inspection it is apparent you put a lot of work into this. I got a chuckle out of your comment about channeling Jess Witty- I think should try doing this more often!
