PTI Make it Monday Challenge

***Update*** 
Oh. My. Word.  This card was chosen today for Papertrey Ink's featured project.  I can't believe it!  You can check out the actual post here on PTI's FaceBook page HERE.
I know I haven't technically *won*, since the drawing isn't until the end of the week, but I feel like I won just by being picked.  I would absolutely love to win the drawing though becuase (warning, pity party coming up!) I have not won anything since pre-school.  Yep.  Nothing, nada, zip, zilch.  My prize way, way back in pre-school?  A giant 5 pound Hershey chocolate bar.  You could imagine that it was absolute heaven for a four year old!
Now don't get me wrong, I still love chocolate.  But these days I would SO much prefer a PTI gift certificate.  Not to mention it would be so much easier on the hips!  :)
So if all of you, my fellow blog-land friends, would keep your fingers crossed for me I would much appreciate it.  And say it with me, "pick me, pick me, pick me, oh please, oh please, oh please!!!"
Thank you, and good night! 



I have to say, I am loving all of the festivities over at Nichole Heady's blog in celebration of Papertrey Ink's fourth anniversary!  The first sneak peek and set of projects from one of the new releases was posted on-line tonight so if you haven't had a chance yet you should go check it out at http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/.  You will be amazed at what's in store for this month's release.  It's new, it's fresh, it's fun...with a little bit of old....just go see for yourself.  You won't be sorry!

As part of this month's fun and festivies, the first Make it Monday challenge was posted inspiring us to use our favorite sentiment stamps as the main focus of a project.  The one below was created using just two stamps from the Mat Stack One set. 
This was a fun challenge and  I hope to be able to make another card for this challenge tomorrow night as it helped me see my favorite set in a new light.



Here's a close-up of the main sentiment, which I added a couple of little rhinestones to the sides to help set it apart from the sentiment background.

Stamps: PTI Mat Stack One
Cardstock: white, kraft
Other: PTI Scarlet Jewel felt, Signature Series: Flower die, black button, rhinestones
