PTI Colour challenge

Hi bloggy friends this is my one and only entry in to the PTI colour challenge...just happy I had time to play at all!!
I picked Betsy's colours as I'm a cream kinda gal...and it's the colour I used the least of!! I was really struggling with the brightness of the Hibiscus burst and Harvest gold when I found this sentiment and suddenly the card flew from there. Used a few mat stacks and the guidelines impression plate.
Also, i watched the gluber video on the cosmo cricket blog and thought why couldn't I do that with some scor pages and a circle nestie...and voila!! I use some new SU seam binding to make my rolled flower. Definitely a learning curve, I will adhere the backside to some card stock next time I make one, as if I touched the sticky surface I kept pulling it away from the backing.

I also coloured my seam binding with a copic and scrunched it into this little fussy bow...which I cant decide if I like or not !!

Thanks for stopping by and good luck everyone!!


  1. Very pretty card! I love the rosette you made with seam binding, I'm going to have to try that. This is my favorite of the Team's color combos too.

  2. So lovely. You're amazing for going with the seam binding 2 ways and managing to totally rock it too! The texture from the embossing looks good enough to some yummy frosting or something delectable. Fab card!

  3. Very pretty, Rose!!! Oh, that rose is just gorgeous!!! Can you possible post the link to the video? I'd love to try it. Look at you kickin' it with the seam binding......and kickin' it so well! Just a lovely, lovely card!

  4. Very pretty card! Love the colors together and that rose is gorgeous! Will definitely have to try making one of those!
