beautiful brushstrokes...

Hello!!   Hope you had a wonderful week.  Mine was very busy, but that's okay... next week will be a bit slower.  Got the chance last night to make a couple of cards... sharing one today.  This card is for the current Time Out challenge, as well as Freshly Made Sketches.   (ETA:  adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  Spots & Dots)

I recently got the PTI Make It Market Kit Beautiful Brushstrokes and oh my goodness... is it beautiful!! Love, love, love all the stamp sets and couldn't wait to make something with it.  Last night I got my chance.  The kit comes with three stamp sets: one large set full of gorgeous flowers and two smaller sets.  I used the two smaller sets for my card, as well as some patterned paper from the kit.  Happily a lot of the colors in the Time Out inspiration photo are similar to the colors in the Beautiful Brushstroke kit and since the photo includes some feathers I just had to use the feathers from the BB kit.  I used my current favorite technique of partial embossing on the card as well.  Really like how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, Stampin Up! Pool Party; Patterned Paper:  PTI Beautiful Brushstrokes; Stamps:  Beautiful Brushstrokes; Dies:  PTI and My Favorite Things; Twine:  PTI (Beautiful Brushstrokes); Embossing Folder:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up!, Close to My Heart and Memento
