Make it Monday Challenge

I made a card for the "Make it Monday" Challenge over on Nichole Heady's Blog Capture the Moment. The challenge was to use your dies to make mats and frames. The card I made is for my Daughter's sweet sixteen birthday next week! Oh my goodness where does time go? The base of the card is Papertrey Inks Aqua mist, which I embossed with one of the Papertrey Inks Impression Plates called Giga Guildlines, I inked the impression plate with aqua mist ink before I ran it through my cuttlebug, which gave it a beautiful letterpress look. The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny's Gabrielle line, I just love the colors of these papers and they matched perfectly with Papertrey Ink's aqua mist and melon berry!!! I used my Mat stack 3 die from Papertrey Ink to make my frame from one of the patterned papers and then cut the circle out with one of the Limitless layers dies. I stamped my sentiment form the Daydreamer stamp set from Papertrey Ink, with aqua mist ink onto aqua mist cardstock, I then used foam adhesives to give the frame some dimension, added some bakers twine and a "16" bling I found at Micheal's, the flower trim is Maya Road and the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. Thanks for stopping by, Have a Great Day!
