Congrats ~ PTI Blog Hop

congratsmaureenplut

Good morning!  Welcome to my PTI March Blog Hop post!  Nichole is challenging us to use some high gloss on our projects today :)  No problem here for this bling loving girl!  I’m using some gold glitter mist, gold embossing for the leaf veins, some shiny gold cording and some gold sequins.  Check out that jumbo sequins!  I love it!  It’s from Teresa Collins and I couldn’t resist it!

It was a busy paper writing and textbook reading Spring Break, but I managed to crack open some new PTI stamp sets from the Anniversary celebration last month.  I’ve added my inspiration photos below if you care to read more :)  Thanks for stopping by and for all your sweet comments. Enjoy the hop!  I know I always do :)

Here are the sources of my inspiration!  First up is from Dawn McVey (never a surprise, I know!)

I loved how Betsy Veldman embossed the leaf veins in gold on vellum!  Delicious!

And finally my the watercolouring on my tag was inspired by this photo on PTI’s Pinterest On Trend Gold board

Watercolor and Metallic? Need I say more.
