PTI 6th Anniversary: Year of Flowers Challenge (Card #1)

Greetings Blogettes! And the award for BLOGGER WHO APPARENTLY FELL OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH goes to...ME! Lol! Just realized today that the last time I blogged a project was October of 2011. How sad is that!?! Nothing to motivate you to dust off the old blog (or resuscitate it in my situation) like PTI Anniversary time and a chance to win $60 towards their fabulous goodies! My first card showcases the beautiful PTI YOF Violets set. I went with a very simple layout because the flowers' designs are so breathtaking on their own, I didn't want to do anything to distract from them. Started out by stamping the flowers and leaves in black on PTI white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. Next, I cut out the individual flowers and leaves and stacked them using dimensionals and adhered gems to the flower centers. Lastly, I affixed them to a plain PTI white card base, and finished it off with a simple sentiment from PTI Communique Sentiments. I really love the YOF line and hope to add a few more of the sets to my collection in the future. Thanks for stopping by! I'll try to be better about blogging this year, but with 8 weeks left in my pregnancy with boy #3, and two other precious little boys to distract me, I'm not making any promises. ;)
If you leave a comment, let me know if you have any tiny (or big) precious distractions from crafting in your life, and how you make it work for you anyway.
