PTI Blog Hop

I just finished a birthday card using some of my brand new Papertrey Ink goodies and was delighted to find that it fit into the theme for this month's Blog Hop, which just happens to be tonight!

I absolutely ADORE the new With Sympathy set. From the very first sneak peek that Nichole gave, I knew that set was mine. I knew that the classic style would find many uses, and of course hoped that I would have very few occasions to use the phrases included in the set (although they are indeed very beautiful).

And just because I couldn't get enough of those gorgeous vines (and because I chose Pure Poppy as my base), I decided to decorate the inside of the card, too.
What I used:
Stamps: With Sympathy, Birthday Basics
Ink: True Black, Pure Poppy
Paper: True Black, Pure Poppy, Stampers Select White
Other: True Black twill, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Nestabilities ribbon tags die, bling (gotta have the bling!)
