Make It Monday #61 {Flowers With Leaf Dies}

Monday, April 9, 2012


PTI has a new Make It Monday Challenge today.  Dawn made a flower using the leaves from the Sending You die.  I wanted to see what other dies could work.  I first tried to use the large holly die.  I did not like the way the flower looked at all.  I went back to my dies a second time and came across the leaves from the Rosie Posie dies and thought they might work....and they did! The flower itself came out huge.  Way too big for a card, I thought.  I decided, instead, to attach it to a little gift bag.  In it, I could give a card set or treat to someone special!




See you later!

  15. AMAZING!!! I just wonder when PTI will ask you to be join their dt team. You are just the best inspiration for their products. (Unfortunately their intern. shipping is extremenly expensive )-: Maybe that's good because you would have made me buy things for a fortune!
