Christmas in July

Today my great husband and daughter tagged along on a treasure hunt at antique stores. We were in search of early Christmas presents, comic books and of course crafting supplies!!! I was estatic when I cam across a flower frog for $4!!! I snactched it up. THEN..... I found another one. The dealer said $2, but his wife said $1. You can see my $1 treasure in the photo below. So after a day of scouring antique stores for treasures today I decided to make a card to fit both a Christmas in July challenge over at Jill's blog as well as the Papertrey PALs challenge to use a stamp set I have never inked up. I had yet to ink up my anniversary set from PTI and the sentiment from last years set had not been inked up either. Supplies Paper: PTI (Ocean Tides, Pure Poppy), Neenah White Ink: PTI (Ocean Tides, Pure Poppy), CTMH (White Daisy) Stamps: PTI (Round and Round, Everyday Classics) Other: PTI Texture Plate (Tin Type) Foam Tape, Gems

Hi Barbara! You got in just under the wire and I'm so glad! Your card is great--the colors are gorgeous together, and I love that you used a "non-holiday" stamp set (Round & Round--which I haven't inked up yet either--shh). Thank you for playing along with my first ever challenge! It's an honor to have you joining us with your lovely card!

I love this use of PTI's anniversary set! I've really got to get it out and play with it!
BTW, there's another Glimmer Challenge here, if you're interested!
