Make It Monday Framing Sentiments and Images

I decided to participate in the Make It Monday by PTI.  I used retired paper and stamps with the Mat Stack 4 die and Limitless Layers 1-3/4 circle dies.  I needed a masculine birthday, so this was what I came up with for the challenge.

PTI Anniversary Stripe Challenge

My husband wanted me to make a thank you card for his work.  In two weeks he is retiring.  He works for a truck towing company.  He had me make a tow truck pop up card with the colors of their trucks.  Since I needed to make the card, I decided to enter it into the challenge.  I need to add the name of the company to the truck yet.  Inside he can write what he wants to say.
 The outside of the card. 
The inside of the card.

PTI Anniversary Color Challenge

I used the color scheme from Laurie Schmidlin.  I decided to use the Color Pop Florals set including one of the papers in the set.  I used Amethyst Allure and Harvest Gold inks from PTI.  I didn't have the other colors so I used some inks that I had from Stampin Up.  I used the die from the set for the sentiment using Copper foil sheets.  I still have some trouble lining up the stamps especially the little ones that are single.

PTI 11th Anniversary All Die No Stamp Challenge

Since 11 year anniversary is steel, the challenge is to use die cuts for the card.  I used an embossing folder for the background.  I used the Basic Wish Big die as well as the little bird from In the Meadow.  I hope to be able to use this for a masculine card.

PTI Anniversary Day 5 Retiring List

Today's challenge is to use one of the stamps on the retiring list for a project.  I have been trying to catch up on scrapbooking and was working on this page.  I finished it with the stamp Remember this from A Few Pointers.  Wouldn't you know it, after I finished it now I can't find the stamp.  Oh well.
This is a picture showing the stamping.  I don't like to show my granddaughter's face on the internet so I covered it up.  This was her birthday from a few years ago.  Below is a picture of the whole page.

PTI Anniversary Day 4

The challenge today is to use flowers, of which PTI has many, in celebration of the new Anniversary set.  Here is my card for the challenge.  
I have a lot of PTI stamps that have not been used.  I had Nostalgic Notions on my desk that I have been wanting to use for a long time.  I cased this card from the June blog hop.  

PTI Anniversary Day 3

The challenge is to take a card that you have made in the past and transform it in some way.  This is a card that I made a few years ago.  It is very simple.

I used one of the fillable frames for the sentiment.  It was a very simple card.
I still used a fillable frame sentiment and frame and used the same color scheme.  I added a layer and some thread for some interest as well as some sequins.  I popped up the layers as well.  The papers are from the paper packs that were on sale last year.
