Celebrate....Dana!

PTI bloghoplogo

Welcome!
This month's challenge for the PTI blog hop is to make a project inspired by a fellow blogger. Well, I am constantly inspired by Dana (granolagirltoo) and all her gorgeous creations on her blog, Kismet, Art, and Life .

Today I am showing a card I made featuring a rose based on Dana's amazing tutorial found here .

PTI Sept card

I followed Dana's great instructions and used the Beautiful Blooms II die #1. The background was stamped using Background Basics: Petal Power in Versamark on Smoky Shadow cardstock, and heat embossed with white detail powder (Filigree).

PTI Sept rose

Now, my rose is definitely not as well formed and pretty as Dana's but I wish you could see how sparkly it is! I used Tattered Angel's Glimmer Mist in S.W.A.K. to color the rose.

Now, if you haven't seen Dana's blog you need to go immediately and subscribe as she posts the most amazing creations almost daily!

Have a great day!
Melissa
