I {{{heart}}} PTI.  This card was created with the inspiration of Make It Monday #31: Creating Backgrounds With Non-background Stamps.  The video tutorial on this was wonderful and inspiring.  I received Havest Berries with my latest order, and I was anxious to use it.  I am trying to embrace the idea that it is time to think pumpkin instead of popsicle, so I chose fall colors for my project.  I stamped the background with the smallest ginkgo leaf image from the set in SU Crumb Cake ink and also added some berries. I stamped one of the background images from PTI's Half & Half in SU Garden Green and cut it out with the matching die to make the decorative strip.  The sentiment is stamped on vanilla card stock and matted in SU Cajun Craze.  I stamped the medium ginkgo images In SU Cajun Craze ink, cut them out and adhered them with dimensionals. I really love the way this turned out.

Thank you for visiting. I always appreciateyour comments so very much.

This is sweet. That leaf stamp makes a great background paper. Very nice.

Such a great background with those stamps! The sponged areas - especially in the green and white tag - add so much dimension. Beautiful!
