MIM #69

It's been awhile since I participated in a Make It Monday, so I was happy to find the time this week!  For #69, Nicole showed us how she creates new sketches, and then she offered several for us to choose from to make a card.  I chose this one:


I wanted to create a congratulations card for a friend who recently got a job after a long search.  Her favorite color is any shade of aqua/teal, so it was easy to pick some Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, and a dark teal that I have just a bit left of--I would be so happy if PTI comes out with a deep, vibrant teal! 


Can you see the crystal Fancy Flourishes in the background?  I'm going to give this to my friend tomorrow, and I am looking forward to it--she deserves some good things happening in her life!

Supplies
stamps:  PTI--Congrats All Ways, Fancy Flourishes, Star Prints
paper:  PTI--S.S. White, Aqua Mist, Green Boutique; stash
ink:  PTI--Hawaiian Shores; Versamark Dazzle--Frost
other:  Embossing Powder--Opaque White; Filigree Clear, Stampendous Crystal; Dies--PTI Simple Circles border, Seeing Stars; Impression Plate--PTI Polka Dot Basics II; Glitter--Palette Ultrafine Prisma

I love the card, Jill. I like the flourishes behind the stars. Great use of the circle die with the stars. Of course, you used some of my favorite colors, too.

Mine is NOT better. This is wonderful. I love your color choices--what a happy occasion, and a happy festive card. I love the sentiment embossed in white on that dark teal--I join your hope for a PTI teal, too.
