PTI January 2012 Blog Hop




Oh my goodness....... where does the time go? I so totally forgot about this month's PTI Blog Hop, but wanted to participate anyway as there is always so much creative energy! The January challenge is to re-create an older favorite. I really love the Quatrefoil die and what can be done with it in such short amount of time, while creating some lovely dimension and contrast. So.... here is my attempt at V. 2! Thanks so much for taking a peek!
P.S. I thought that I'd also enter my V. 2 card in the Moxie Fab Die Cutting Challenge!

I lvoe your new version. You have made such a bright colourful look using both the cut outs and the frame. It looks like a harlequin colour scheme. Fab. LEsley

I've been saving the cutouts each time I used my Quatrefoil die. I wasn't sure what I'd do with them, but knew they would be good for something. You've just shown what that something is. Amazing card. Smart idea! Thank you for sharing.

This is stunning. Both cards are lovely but version two colours are fantastic. It must have taken some time and patience to work all the negatives.
