There are so many fun events going on in paper crafting this month! Today I found out Papertrey Ink (PTI) is celebrating their 9th anniversary! Wow, congrats PTI!!! They are celebrating with a new challenge every day between Feb. 5 - 14th over at Nicole Heady's blog (link below). They are also doing a huge release. Go check it out!
One PTI challenge is to take a piece of clothing and use that as inspiration for your project. (This is to celebrate their release of paper doll fashions - clever.) So here is my card and the sweater that inspired it:
I created the red ombre background by blending Distress inks (Barn Door, Festive Berries & Worn Lipstick) - lately I've been using Copic markers, but this time I switched it up! Then I die cut Papertrey Ink's Wet Paint Cuts "love" word out of it 3 time, along with 1 Simon Says Stamp heart ("Large Holiday Shapes"). I also cut it with Wplus9's "Sunshine Layers" scallop die frame. This red panel was adhered to a black note card. Then I inlaid black PTI's die cut "love" with those teeny tiny red pieces from the letter loops. On a white SSS die cut heart, I stamped "love you" with Winnie & Walter's set "The Big, The Bold and The Happy" and inlaid that as well, working the washi tape under it. To finish it all off, I added some shimmer with Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and have fun creating!
