PTI anniversary

It's here again!  The anniversary celebration for PTI!  Looking back on my creations since last February,  I think my favorite was a special card made for Nichole Heady on the surprise forum blog hop in her honor.

I wanted a golden harvest card, and it came out exactly as I had envisioned.  I gold embossed the leaves veins and the wheat-like image on the circle tag.  With no harvest gold ink, I used lemon tart kissed with summer sunrise around the edges.  The card front is impressed with the linen plate, and the gold mat is impressed with the canvas plate.


Thank again, Nichole, for all your inspiration and all the love you pour into Papertrey Ink!

xoxo,
Christy
