Papertrey Challenge - Get Well Soon

On Nichole Heady's blog - Capture the Moment - she's revealing all of Papertrey Ink's new products. She put out a "Special Color Challenge" to make a card using the Design Team color choices.  I don't have a ton of PTI cardstock - so I went with Debbie's choices below.  I also used the Paint By Number Sketch she posted on Day 8 of her reveals.

So - after all of that........here is my card!

I used two cuttlebug embossing folder (circle and swiss dots). I used a border punch and an Inkadinkado stamp for the background on the tea kettle.  Everything else is PTI.  I watched Nichole's tutorial about emboss resist technique and attempted to do that with the tea kettle.  To add a little steam - I glued a small amount of cotton ball to the spout!

Here's an upclose picture of the "steam".

Thanks for taking a look today!
