PTI Blog Hop {text challange}

Woohoo! Blog hop time! It's a challenge to use text in your project. I chose to lean on the PTI Around and About Sentiments to create my text panel. I was out last evening so I couldn't link up but I'm here this morning with a project anyways :)

I inked up the single line of text "happy birthday to you" and stamped away. Each line has been inked in two colors. The way I like to do that is ink the whole stamp with the lightest color and then go back and ink random areas with the corner of the darker color ink pad. It's a fun and playful variation.

The top embellishment is also stamped and layered using the around and about set. The heart has been popped up on foam tape and also shined up with glossy accents. The orange glitter on this card provides just a bit more shine as well as the shiny satin dotted ribbon.
Thanks for hopping by! I can't wait to see what everyone did with text last night!

Whew Dana I was wondering how I missed your fabulous creation last night - good to know you just posted it. I love this card - it's SO bright, cheery and fun. Thanks for sharing how you do the words with the two colors. That's a great splash of extra color, too.

You have definitely made great use of this set! I always love seeing how you have tweaked it for a new project and of course, reminding me that I still need that little gem of a stamp set in my collection!! :>:> Glad to see you were able to whip up a texty piece, even if you were unable to link up last night. :>
