PTI Make it Monday Go-To Sentiments

Papertrey Ink is having their fourth anniversary this year. Every anniversary they have special challenges and contest and giveaways. I am trying to participate in as many as I can this year.

My card today is for the Make It Monday event. This will be a new challenge that is posted every Monday. A video will be posted showing a technique or project. I always like video instructions. Make It Monday this week is using several of the same type of sentiments on your card. I chose to do a birthday card.

I used the "Framed" stamp set for the box-type look. Then used "Friends To The End" stamp set for the flowers. Then I used about 7 different stamp sets for the sentiments. I forgot to write them all down. I masked the box area and heat embossed the sentiments and then sponged with Momento Pear Tart ink. I am not crazy about my sponging on this card. But I wanted to post it anyway. It really looks better in person.

This is so pretty and certainly has that "girlie" feel. Great job!
