Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge 2017

Another month is coming to an end, and it was a busy one with 10 days of activities at Papertrey Ink. Since we were on vacation for most of it, I was only able to participate in a few of the first challenges. Trying to get back into the swing of card making, I decided to squeeze in a card today for PTI's February Blog Hop Challenge instead of doing laundry. There's always tomorrow to catch up on household chores. Just look at the gorgeous image Nichole provided this month.



Knew as soon as I saw it that I would use the wreath from MIM Mini Kit: Lovely Laurels, but that was all. Besides that, my DH's aunt will be turning 99 on February 28. This is what I came up with inspired by the black, gold and pink color combination. I sure hope she likes it!




Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. Due to being ill for two weeks and then on vacation for another 10 days, I'm way behind in commenting even though I've peeked at a few blogs. I'll make a real effort this week to get back to blog hopping and commenting. 


Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White (card base), Basic Black and Raspberry Fizz
Ink: VersaMark and VersaFine Onyx Black
Stamps: MIM Mini Kit: Lovely Laurels and Painted Petals
Dies: MIM Mini Kit: Lovely Laurels and Modern Numbers
Other: DCWV The Metallic Stack (gold 99), Zing! Gold Embossing Powder, Floral Sequins, Foam Tape and Gelly Roll Glitter Pen
