Have a Happy Birthday PTI Challenge


We've put a little something fun together for you today in honor of the last day of our anniversary countdown!  We present the Paper Crafting Alphabet Challenge!  Use anywhere from the first three to ALL of the letters in your first or last name.  Write the letters in a single column on a piece of scratch paper and then use the chart below as a reference for each of those letters, making notes about what you need to incorporate into your project.  If you have a "double" letter, skip the duplicate letter and move onto the next letter in your name.  Use your first or last name, depending on which one has a more interesting array of letters.  If you want to keep things simple, just use the first three letters of your name, if you want something more complex and challenging use all of the letters in your name!  And most importantly, have fun!

The first 3 letters in my name are JOA and I pulled out a stamp set I have never inked.  In fact, when I purchased it, I asked myself why?  Because I am not a fan of southwest design.  However, this card came out good and I know just the friend who would like it.  I created ombre borders on the whole card base and put a rhinestone in the center of the focal point.

This came out fabulous! I love the ombre background and the simple rhinestone in the center really makes this special!
