PTI Swap Card: all things grow with love

Good morning! I'm so happy it's Friday; I get the day off before working the weekend. As usual, there is long list of things to do, but the most important is to get my PTI swap cards done! This swap, hosted by my friend Amy over at SCS, is due the 15th! I always wonder why I am a procrastinator.... What is wrong with me? LOL
The PTI swap group rocks! As I was threading the buttons for this card, I was thinking I wouldn't thread 78 buttons for just anybody!
Image/Sentiment: PTI "Everyday Button Bits"
Ink: SU! Old Olive
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Ripe Avocado, and Spring Rain
Embellies: PTI Simply Chartreuse Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon, PTI Buttons
Extras: Cuttlebug "Paisley" Embossing Folder, Spellbinders Nestabilities, DMC Floss
I did discover something interesting when making this card; PTI's Ripe Avocado ribbon is a very close match with their Simply Chartreuse. I opted to go for the dots because I like the way it mimics the dotted leaves.
Thanks for stopping by today; I hope you have a good one!
I think I will be doing a bit of shopping today too.... DD is in hot pursuit of a Webkinz to mail to her friend for her can't be any Webkinz, it has to be "just right"! Wish us luck!
