PTI Blog Hop





So I recently purchased some Cosmo Cricket paper, click here for the card that inspired this card and when Cosmo Cricket posted on their blog a sketch challenge, I figured that was a good enough reason to continue to play with the Circa 1934 papers.  And since I love the PTI All Booked Up set and this month's hop is about "boys to men" I figured I'd throw it all together.  And being the multi-challenge gal over here, I've used 2 Hero Arts stamps in the mix to add it to their masculine challenge, little boys work for masculine right?  To see more of the PTI blog hop, check out Nichole's blog.


Materials: Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 paper, PTI All Booked Up stamp, Hero Arts Cling Classic Fabric background stamp, Hero Arts Designer Enjoy sentiment, PTI Mat Stack 4 die, PTI Tiny Tags die, EK Success 1 3/4th inch circle punch, Spellbinders scallop circle die, Cuttlebug Just My Type embossing border, Paper Phine twine, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz Distress Antique Linen ink, PTI kraft card stock
