PTI MIM #312

MIM #312: Framing Sentiments & Images
I love Laurie's challenge for us today using frames to high-
light sentiments/images! I sponged rainbow colors at a diagonal onto Stamper's Select white CS and die-cut a frame using the Mix & Mat: Confetti die. My BG was created by
tone-on-tone ink/kraft CS with the balloon stencil. I finished
up adding some white balloons and a sentiment from Ombre
Sentiments: Birthday. I wanted the only color to come from
my rainbow frame. :)     BTW, the glue behind my sequins is
not dry yet...we are having some winter here finally in SoCal this week with day temps in the 50's and lows in the 30's (yikes).
 Supplies: PTI Birthday Balloons, Ombre Sentiments: Birthday, Mix & Mat: Confetti, 
PTI Dye Ink (Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Harvest gold, Spring Moss, Spring Rain,
Lilac Grace, Cocoa Bean, Fresh Snow, Stormy Sea), Umbrella Crafts Dye Ink (Beach
Sand), crochet yarn, misc sequins.

Supplies: MFT Jungle Friends, Stitched Rectangle STAX 2,
Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames, MFT Party Patterns/
Tiny Hearts Brights/Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Pastels/Watercolor

     I did not quite make the 20 minute start to finish time...but
this card came together quickly for me. I won't about 1 hour?!! My cards usually take me a minimum of 3 hours as I am a meticulous, detail oriented, SLOW worker. All the elements are die-cut from patterned paper with only the sentiment being stamped.
