Playing Along with PTI

I finally found time to spend in my craft room making cards for PTI's big anniversary celebration so I hope you don't mind if I post them all on one post to make it easier.  
 I'll start with Day 2 ~ using a repetitive pattern.  I used this darling set called Bunny Basket.  I bought this set last year and had to wait a whole year to use it because I had all my Easter cards finished when it arrived.   
I stamped a coordinating envelope while I was stamping.  I adore these cute little chicks!!


My birdhouse using Nichole's fun free template, adorned with leaves from Embellished Elegance and Button Stacks Dies.

I went a little wild and crazy on this card using a grid stencil and distress inks to create the background.  It was so colorful and busy I almost didn't use it but in the end decided that this fun flamingo and pineapple from Some Like It Hot could pull it off.  

 This card is a little more tamed down, don't you think?

Another card using Embellished Elegance.

You can find all the details of PTI's 10th Anniversary Celebration on Nichole's blog.

I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ Make Your Own Flowers
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ For A Special Lady
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

  1. WOW...you have been busy Birgit!! FABULOUS cards, but hands down my favorite is your WILD card with the oh so colorful background...absolutely LOVE it!! Love your birdhouse too! I couldn't get the curved part of the house to look nice on mine, so I bailed and used the Tiny Town basic house die instead...I'll be posting it soon. Hope you're not being snowed in again!!
