Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

High gloss is definitely a trend, especially in cardmaking. Here is this month's Blog Hop Challenge for Papertrey Ink, which was to incorporate anything glossy.

For my card, I opted to use white embossing for my sentiment and glossy accents on my "flying" butterflies. This birthday card really shines. Check it out below:

PTI MIM #155: Create Confetti with Papertrey Ink Dies

The past several weeks my time was consumed assisting my DH with moving his brother to an adult family home as his COPD continued to worsen. We were so thankful he agreed to this transition because just two weeks later our Lord was calling his name. After 10 days of company and the burial four days ago, our last guests left Saturday. It was a beautiful celebration and fabulous tribute in my BIL's honor. Needless to say, we are looking forward to our vacation in another week.

It felt so good to get back in my stamping room today for some quiet time. After watching Danielle's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday video here, I decided to give it a try. Some of the hearts are popped up for added dimension. The strip of patterned paper just above my rounded corners helps ground the sentiment.

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Ocean Tides, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold & SU Rose Red
Ink: SU Basic Gray
Stamps: Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
