Springing Into Action

We're in the middle of Papertrey Ink's Eighth Anniversary celebration, where they introduced "All Things Spring" with gorgeous new products soon to be released.  Today's challenge is to spring into action, meaning that we are to ink up a set that has yet to see ink.  This fall I ordered the Mat Stack 3 stamp set and hadn't used it, until today:
I stamped the Mat Stack 3 stamp in Smokey Shadow and the two stamps from PTI's Thank You Kindly stamp set in Raspberry Fizz.  It was die cut using the Mat Stack 3 die and matted with both Raspberry Fizz and Smokey Shadow card stock.  The white paper is from my scraps, they were embossed using two different Darice embossing folders.  The ribbon is from packaging from some Christmas PJs I bought for my girls.

Thanks for coming over to visit, I know I've been posting more than usual so, as the card says, thank you ever so much for staying with me this week!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
