Turquoise, Aqua, and Gray Stars

This week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge is to "create along with us," choosing a February release project created by the PTI design team for inspiration.

My card started from Amy's lovely butterfly card.  I thought her color scheme - nearly monochromatic - and variety of patterns would work well in a starry design.  Thanks, Amy, for a beautiful project to inspire me!

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) stormy sea (medium gray), mint julep (light green), tropical teal (deep turquoise), and several prints from PTI pattern packs: aqua mist (pale aqua) bitty dot, Hawaiian shores (medium turquoise) damask, tropical teal gingham, and smokey shadow (dark gray) leaf.
  • Silver tinsel weave ribbon (3/8") came from PTI but is no longer available.
  • Dies are PTI cover plate: stars and photo finish strips.  The stars are inlaid into the stormy sea background.
  • The sentiment "thinking of you" is from PTI keep it simple: thinking of you, stamped with PTI tropical teal ink cube
  • The two tiny stars were punched with a 1/4" Fiskars hand punch.
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.
