Card 17 - Life Be Like A Wildflower

I did this card with 2 challenges in mind. I've not really participated in any challenges before so this can be considered my first. The first 'challenge' is from Papertrey Ink's Make-It-Monday #33: Frosted Images

I didn't have any PTI's inks, I made do with whatever I had on hand and needed a little extra work done. As my inks are mainly dye inks, they dry faster and are probably not as juicy as pigment inks or PTI's inks. I had to work directly from the white ink pad as an additional step. However, I enjoyed the process and getting my fingers inky.

I'm also participating in the Young Crafters Unite Challenge #2: Envelope To Match. I do decorate my envelopes when the occasion arises. Anyhow, I thought it will be fun to also try it out this challenge and get back on some crafting.

Supplies Used:


  1. So pretty. I also love that you shaded around the edge of your card stock. It added extra depth to the card. I'm going to try this technique today.

  2. This is just gorgeous! Love the layered stamps and the soft colors you used.

  3. Lovely card, and the envelope to match is perfect! Thanks for playing with us at YCU!

  4. What a beautiful card, and wonderful envelope! Thank you so much for joining us at Young Crafters Unite =)

  5. Such a pretty card, love the bamboo on the envelope too :)
