So Sweet of You

I was so excited to start using my new PTI products.  On of my favorite new things is the Giga Guidelines Impression Plate!  I just love it!  I made this card for my BFF.  So Kari, if you're reading this...act surprised when you actually get it!

I really need to get the Tea-Dye Duo!  I keep putting it in my cart, but then it goes out of stock before I get around to placing my order.  Good thing I don't wait too long between orders!  Anyway, I used a paper towel and Dark Chocolate Ink to get a little color on the edges. I love how it accents the Impression on the orange paper.  I also used my small Scallop Die.

Here's another angle. You can really see the gorgeous impression!

Hope you're having a fantastic Saturday - mine is just flying by!  Thanks for stopping!

Beautiful card, Anika. I didn't order the Giga Guide Lines impression plate, but I now regret it a little. It looks great.

Beautiful!I didn't get that plate either, but after seeing your card I think I may need it! I love how you inked the edges.

Love the texture this impression plate creates, Anika. With the way you've inked it, it almost looks like fabric.
