Make It Monday #49

Good Morning! So, one of my "New Years Resolutions" this year was to participate more in Make It Mondays and Blog Hops with Papertrey Ink. And when I saw the incredible card and technique by Betsy on Monday, I knew I had to get in on this one! I quickly made this card after work on Tuesday night, and wanted to get it posted right away, but wanted to wait for daylight to take the picture, so brought it to work with me yesterday. I got the pic then my batteries immediately died before I could upload the pic! So I spent last night recharging the batteries, and am finally here today to post my card! Whew! Such a fiasco!
So, If you have tried this technique, you already know this, but if you haven't, let me give you this tip...be careful with the ink on the velum it will stay wet and it will get on your hands and rub off on your card base! And with limited time during the week, I just had to roll with it! So, just don't look too closely, K? Thanks! ;)
I used the same Label Basics as Betsy, just used a rectangle. I also used Simple Sunflower, and Happy Trails for the sentiment. The inks are Summer Sunrise and Canyon Clay. The ribbon is also Canyon Clay.
I hope you like my take on the challenge! And I'll be back soon with some Valentine's I've been busy working on! Oh, and wish me luck with my puppy search! We decided we needed a new dog! We've just been missing our Mickey so much! We are going to look at one tonight after work, but I am not sure about this one. I haven't seen a pic, it is a Rat Terrier- Chihuahua mix and is apparently kind of a scared dog. Nice and sweet, but has been moved around a lot a so scared. So, we will see. I want to make sure we get the right dog, as it will be a part of our family for many years to come!

Have a GREAT day!

This card is so pretty. And your bow is perfect!!! Those sunflowers were a perfect choice. I have the same resolution you do for the MIM, so I'll look forward to seeing more of them from you.
