SFYTT July - Happy Birthday

Hi Friends!
Yikes- it's been a bit, huh? I even got an email from my mom asking if I was posting anymore because she hadn't received any updates from my blog!  I guess that meant it was time for me to FINALLY take some pictures of what I've been working on and blog them!

Well, today's card is one I actually worked on this past Saturday.  There were a bunch of trial and errors with this card (thankfully not including glue) so it took me a lot longer than it should have, but I'm happy with the final result.

This card is 'almost' 100% Papertrey Ink (stamps, ink and paper).  I started with the Harvest Berry stamps covering the background with two different inks.  Then I used a Verve mini background stamp on the white panel and die cut the Harvest Berries out 3x.  I used some gems as the berries and the PTI sentiment.   In person, the sentiment is much easier to read!!

I'm entering this card in the Sketch For You To Try - July sketch.

Now time to get going on some more posts!!

Thanks for your visit!
