PTI Challenge

Two posts in one day...it must be Groundhog's Day! Just so happens that we have another Groundhog's Day birthday to celebrate. Before I show you the card, I want to apologize in advance for the poor picture quality. The card stock is Stampin' Up! Soft Suede and no matter where I took the picture, the card base photographed with a greenish hue instead of the rich brown that it actually is. Anyway, here is the card:

For this card, I downloaded a Papertrey Ink image which was designed by the fabulous Dawn McVey. You can get the image here: http://dawnmcvey.typepad.com/these_are_a_few_of_my_fav/2010/02/birthday-bash-challenge.html. Once I printed the image, I use my Nestabilities to cut out the circle and the flower behind it, and my Cricut to cut out the scroll that I used for the stem. After distressing the flower, I adhered the circle to it using popdots. I embellished the border around the sentiment with brown and white pearls. A border punch and some more gems help ground the image.
This was my first hybrid card and I can't wait to make more. You can check out the rest of the images created by Papertrey Ink's 2010 Design Team at http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2010/02/day-2-2010-stamp-designers-a-challenge.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+typepad%2FSWJb+%28%7Bcapture+the+moment%7D%29.

Hi Linda,
I, too, read your comment on Becca's Amazing Paper Grace. My Mom has Celiac. I'll ask her for the names of the cook books that she's found helpful. I know that after lots of experimentation she's found some recipes for baked goods that actually taste good! I'll let you know what she says.
Hope that this will be of some help,
