Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #276 and #thedailymarker30day

Hello everyone! 
I'm so excited to be playing along with the 30 Day coloring challenge again.  
I love, love, love to color! 

Today's coloring projects are for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge.  
This week the sweet Mellissa challenged us to use kraft card stock and colored pencils.  
I just love how my projects turned out. 

For this project I stamped just the detail images from the PTI Floral Sketches stamp set on a piece of kraft card stock that wasn't quite big enough for the die. 
 I love when scraps work perfectly for a project!
I then used my colored pencils to finish the image.  

I inked the edge of the first layer of kraft card stock with PTI Fresh Snow ink. 

Then added a layer of PTI vellum card stock. 
And finished with a strip of card stock and twine to finish the card.  

This card I made to send to a dear friend that had surgery yesterday. 
I wish her a very speedy recovery! 

I feel like I went very old school for this card.  
I stamped and embossed the image from the PTI Pretty Peonies stamp set with white embossing powder.  The colored the images with colored pencils.  This stamp set has gotten so much use over the years, but I'm challenging myself to pull out older sets and make sure they see ink. 

I started with a card base make from the PTI Noted A2 die. 
Then layered cardstock and my colored image panel, the die cut and sentiment is from the Pretty Peonies stamp set as well.
