PTI June Blog Hop

Hello!  I'm popping in quickly to share a card for Papertrey's June Blog Hop.  PTI provided an incredible inspiration photo, but I sure had a hard time figuring out what to make. I tried creating a background drawing from some of the colors, images, etc. from the photo, but after a lot of smooshing, blending, splattering, stamping, water brushing, and more I wasn't pleased with the result.

So what did I do? I put it down and left it....for days.  It was fairly desperate need for a thank you card that made me pick it up again.  I used PTI's Headline Alphabet dies to die cut the word "thanks", added a couple score lines behind the word (you have to look close), and finished it off with a few Neat & Tangled sequins...and I am much happier with the result.
I hope you have are having a fabulous weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
