PTI February 2016 Blog Hop

So, there's good news and bad news on this fine Thursday. The bad news is I dropped my phone in my bathroom and the screen shattered! I nearly died! My precious husband has already ordered me a new phone and he wasn't even mad at me, which is part of the good news! The other part is that I made this card for PTI's February Blog Hop!! I was inspired by this card that I saw on Instagram this morning and it only took me one try to successfully complete the partial die-cutting, Major. Miracle!! I used PTI's Flower Favorites, which is my new favorite stamp set (I know, I say that ALL THE TIME!!) and the sentiment is from one of the blooms sets. I added a strip of gold cardstock and a few pearls and I popped up the entire bottom panel with foam. I have never done that before but have seen it a lot. I really like how the foam gives the panel a uniform look. Thanks for stopping by today and stay warm and safe out there!

Fabulous use of the partial die-cut technique! The background stamping really help highlight the image.
