why mess with a good thing

Another card for you today. Does this card bring anything to mind?


If your mind went to Papertrey Ink, I'm not surprised. That's where my inspiration originated. A while ago Maile B. introduced a paper line and this design caught my eye. Why mess with a good thing, I thought, and kinda recreated it using these stamp sets.

Celebrate Artsy

Holiday Artsy
The sentiment is from the new release, a great and versatile sentiment set designed by Shery and called Big Greetings.  Watch for more of it on Friday. I was inspired by colors from The Challenge although I strayed a bit since I needed more tones. Bev of Happy Dance is being featured. Yay Bev!


Since I used a newly released stamp set, I'm squeaking in at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - Something New.

Two of those swooshes are stamped with Delicata silver pigment ink, so I'm joining the metallic fun at Just Us Girls #325.

And Betsy V''s card totally reminded me of the idea of a strip of striped paper along the edge to pep things up. I'm joining the Create Along With Us over at PTI. I didn't actually use PTI product, but it was Maile's PP that inspired my design!

Happy Hump Day!
