First Ever PTI Card!

Hello Again! Have been away sorting out my craft hovel - have bought some fantastic shelves from Inkylicious, who are based in Batley, West Yorks. Now I've got the not too small a task of putting sticky colour labels on all the pads! Will keep me quiet for a while! They also do ribbon and paper racks, both of which are really excellent!
My friend Bev recently ordered from Papertrey Ink, and for the first time I decided to join in and order some of their lovely stamps. Below is the first card that I have made with their stamps, and I am really pleased with the results! The inspiration for the card came from a Homes and Gardens magazine I was reading whilst in Starbucks! I wanted a kind of Toile de Jouy effect - don't know if it is quite that - but it'll do for me!
Full recipe is below. this card is a card of 'news' - first card made at my new desk, with new stamps, from a new company, using new colours and new techniques! I think I'll have to go and have a lay down!
