MIM #128 and PFP

There is a great new Make It Monday Challenge this week.
Ashley has put together a video on how to make "Random Background Patterns".  Now this one I found fun and easy to do... NOT as 10-minute-easy as Ashley's card  ~ more like 2 hours, but still ...

PTI Products used ~ 
Cardstock:  Stampers Select White
Stamps/Dies:  Beautiful Butterflies; Spiral Bouquet; Rosie Posie

I used  three small stamps for the background in three different colored inks.  The Butterflies were die cut from glitter paper.  The Ribbon Banner die is from Spellbinders. There is also a Spellbinders Impressabilities embossed "Pebbles" background on the sage card base which is from Cardstock Warehouse Paper Co.

I am also entering this card in A Passion for Papertrey's ~
Use Three Embellishments Challenge 

My three embellishments:  Ribbon, gold twine, button 
and I think you could add the dies as embellies also :)


  1. Worth all the extra minutes, Helen! Beautiful background and colors too!
