Make It Monday #271- 2016 A La Carte

As we venture into a new year, Papertrey Ink has given us 34 videos from 2016.  We can do anything that we may have missed and now have another chance to accomplish it.  Or, you can do as I did. I went to one challenge that I really had fun with and wanted to do again.  Amy Sheffer showed us how to build a background with frames.  I just wanted to do another card with this technique and I think that I will be using it again.  Maybe in a challenge soon.  LOl

Here is my card that I will enter in the Make It Monday #271 Challenge

The supplies: 
PTI cardstock, Soft Stone
MFT die, Stitched round rectangles
PTI stamp and matching dies, Peonies on Parade
PTI stamp, Happy for You
BG copic markers and Distressed ink in Evergreen Bough
Rhinestones from my stash

Once again this year, I will be needing lots of encouragement cards to send. 

Thank you for your comments.  I love that they brighten my day!
