thank you teacher PTI hop



Good morning… I have an order for 4 teacher thank you cards (and the ones I should make for my own kids' teachers), so I thought I'd use the latest PTI Blog Hop "Aqua and Melon" to get cracking on this cards.  I can't decide if the washi chevron tape is distracting from this card…  Everything on the card is PTI with the exception of a tiny piece of Twinery Twine.  And yes, Jen, you were right….  Hope everyone has a good Memorial Day weekend, I escaped to the Nevada desert for 2 night of camping and am now heading back to work.  I've got some fun photos from a local concert I'm going to post on my work blog shortly.

I love how you added the touch of melon and berry. I think the washi breaks it up a bit. Hope you had a gorgeous weekend for camping!

This is so pretty!! And I do not think the chevron takes away from the card. You used black for the sentiment and it actually draws the eye to the block. Really great job on the challenge!!

Beautiful use of dies, and I love the pop of black!

Yay for you numero uno! Love your take on the challenge. And I think the touch of washi is good - how about putting it along the bottom of the die cut instead of the top?
