Papertrey Ink - Blog Hop Marvelous Monograms

Hi!

It's been almost two years I think since I have participated in a PTI Blog Hop! I am a little late to the party today, but none the less I am getting my card posted! 

I have had a request for some personal stationery, so I thought this might be a good trial. It needs to be flat for mailing, and easy enough that I can mass produce the design. 

Here is what I have today:

I started with a white card base onto which I stamped the flowers from Natural Beauties in various inks in hues of blues, reds, and oranges giving me a two tone look. The Limitless Layers was used as the focal point for Papertrey Ink's Ambassador Monogram Edition which was mounted on the Matstack 4 die-cut.

That's it for me! Short and sweet today! Enjoy the rest of the hop!
~Tammy~
