Sweet RAK from Sandy, and another PTI card

I got happy mail today!!! My friend Sandy (Swap4Fun) not only sent a very pretty card, but she also sent me an assortment of DP paper!! See it in the bottom of the pic? If you get a chance, stop by her fun blog. She's giving away blog candy!!

Sandy, you rock!! I love the bright and cheerful (ha, no pun intended) card, and that was so nice of you to send me this paper. I don't have this paper, but it's funny because it totally matches some ribbon that I bought at Mike's. You may have just inspired me to make a card with it...hopefully this weekend. Thanks again, girl!

I also made a second card with my new PTI Garden of Life set. This card also follows today's Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS. The leaves are stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Lime Green, so it really shimmers. The centers of the flowers are swarovski crystals. The ink used on the flowers and the ribbon is the new Summer Sunrise color by PTI.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Garden of Life
Paper: Papertrey White
Ink: Palette Summer Sunrise, Brilliance Pearlescent Lime Green

Hope you're having a great Thursday! Sandy, you made me smile today with the happy mail. Mwah!

Gorgeous card Denise!! Love all the hand cut elements!! Very pretty colors. And those crystal centers look wonderful!!

Glad you liked the RAK. Man, judging by the corners of the card ... bella took a beating on her way to you. I hope the paper inside didn't get messed up.
