Create Along With PTI- April 2016

"Create Along With Us" challenge at Papertrey Ink allows us to select something that the amazing team has created during the April release that inspired you.  PTI allows us to create our own version ~ COOL, huh?

Here is a card Kay Miller made and I just love the new Friendship Jar Flowers and the Bold & Beautiful Sentiments from this release.

So I pretty much tried to clone Kay's card *smile* with my Song Bird dies as the flowers and leaves in the mason jar and a wood grain EF under the jar instead of her blue lines  :-)

Sorry for the not-so-great photo of my card, after several hours on the phone with my computer savvy friends and relative,  I had to climb mountains and forge valleys to get this on my computer by emailing it from an IPad because Windows 10 is suddenly~like today! no longer recognizing my Pentax camera as an external device (WHAT?)  I will have to call in my computer guy tomorrow :-(


  1. Helen, so soft and beautiful. Great take on Kay's card.

  2. Aren't you the clever one, Helen? Great choice to use Songbirds for your bouquet and woodgrain EF in lieu of Kay's stripes. Awesome results!

  3. Oh it looks beautiful :) I like the soft colors :)
    Hugs, Eunice

  4. Hi Helen, I've never thought to use the greens and flowers from Song Bird in the Friendship jar... they work perfectly together! Your card is so sweet and soft. The colors are perfect! You totally win this challenge, hands down!

  5. I have to ditto Birgit on using the Songbirds greens and flowers in a Mason jar...absolutely perfect Helen! And I just ordered the Mason Jar die (along with the Friendship Flowers of course!!) so I can CASE you on this when my order comes! Lovely, lovely card Helen, and I'm so glad you were able to figure out a way to post this card! Don't you just hate computers sometimes?!!!!!!

  6. Love your twist on the card. The wood grain works perfectly. Cara x

  7. Beautiful springy card, Helen! Your water is perfect!
