Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

I missed a lot of PTI's Stamp-A-Faire yesterday but I did get a card ready for today's blog hop! The theme this month is color and sketch - this is the option I chose to work with:

I made a few "adjustments" such as a slight color variation (I used a different green than what is listed above) and I eliminated the scalloped band shown in the sketch. Here is my card:

I started with the new Mighty Oak die which I impressed rather than cut. This piece was then layered onto a Spring Moss mat. My strips at the bottom are patterned papers from Pacific Vineyard and Damask Designs. Another strip, with a sentiment from Boutique Borders: Sympathy finished off this simple sympathy card.

Enjoy hopping and checking out all of today's fabulous artwork!

Mary, this is an awesome card! Do you mind emailing me what your sandwich was to make the die give such a great impression without cutting? It's perfect!! My email is on my profile page. Thank you!!

Your embossed tree background is just perfect. You kept it simple but full of texture. Lovely.
