Here is my card for Papertrey Ink's 3rd Anniversary color challenge.  I was distraught when I saw the colors I had to use.  I don't have smokey shadow or scarlet jewel paper.  So, I improvised in the best way I knew how and was pleased with the results in the end.  Thanks for looking today!!

Stamps:  Giga Guide Lines (PTI), Background Basics: Hearts (PTI), Wishful Elegance (Verve)
Paper: Kraft, Stamper's Select White, Polka Basics (PTI)
Ink: Smokey Shadow, Scarlett Jewel

Other: Ribbon - Michael's Christmas Ribbon (from 3 or 4 years ago), Prima Flowers, Jewels - Dollar Tree

Resist . . .

I am playing along with Papertrey Ink's blog giveaway.  We are supposed to make a card using the resist technique.  However, I am embossing deficient.  Seriously!  I have tried all the tips, tricks, advice, brands, you name it.  I cannot heat emboss.  There, I said it.  But, I thought I would give it one more go around . . . to no avail.  So, with great hesitation (and to prove that I should NEVER heat emboss) I give you my creation.

Paper:  Stampers Select White and Spring Rain (PTI)
Stamps: Polka Dot Basics and Tiny Treats Valentine (PTI)
Ribbon: Offray
Ink: Lemon Tart, Spring Moss, Spring Rain, and Dark Chocolate (PTI)
Other: Copics
