PTI Blog Hop

Hey friends! This is post #2 for today, so be sure to scroll down for the GRS design team challenge...and our shaped cards!

I am happy that I am getting to participate in the PTI blog hop this month! I love seeing the great cards that come from the challenge! This month, Nichole challenged everyone to use textures--the fall/winter textures of wool, herringbone, felt, etc. 

I am filling an order for some wedding cards, and wanted to do a simple and slightly elegant card--that had texture to it! 

I started with some felt-black and gray that I die cut with the Lovely Layers die. I stamped a white piece of cardstock with soft stone ink, and my background basics diamond stamp. I love that these sets coordinate really well! I added my sentiment from mega mixed messages set. I rounded the corners on my white card front, then added it to my card base with dimensional adhesive. I added a nice big rhinestone and called it good!

Thanks a bunch for stopping by! I am excited to get a few minutes (or a lot of minutes!;)) to look through all the great creations in the hop today!!

Totally awesome card, Jen!! I adore the bling and felt on your layers and your bg stamp with that soft stone is fab! Rounding the corners really rounded out the beauty of your card! Good luck in the hop!
