PTI September Blog Hop

When I first saw the Wreaths challenge for the PTI September blog hop, I wanted to ink up my newly acquired 'Happiness in Bloom' stamp set, just perfect for this challenge! When I inked up the first card, I wasn't quite happy with it and decided to do a smaller second card (12x12cm). The second card uses the colours of the Colour Throwdown challenge #261. When stamping the second card, I wanted to try Bokeh stamping and went a little bit overboard... I went back to the first card and added to it. These are the end results, I think I like the second one better, what do you think? I'm also linking this card to Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge even though the PTI stamps are not available at SSS, all the inks and enamel dots I used were purchased from SSS. I'm also adding them to Moxie Fab World's Handmade Cards Week Colour Media challenge.
By the way, I was very happy tonight, my card for CASE Study Challenge 158 was picked as the winning card... Yay! My first win in CSC!






Ingredients:

Neenah Solar White, PTI Happiness in Bloom, Hero Arts Pale Tomato, Butter Bar, Pool, Stone Wash, Field Green and Green Hills, Ranger Archival Jet Black, Blue Marker, MME enamel dots.
