I'm doin' the happy dance for Friday!!!
I received my PTI Anniversary stamps this week and I did get to ink a few of them up. Oh, what lovely, lovely stamps they had in February!!! The card I created was really out of my comfort zone because of colors and size! I'm used to making the standard 4.25"x5.5" card......but this one is a 5"x7"! It looks so huge! But I needed it to for the Hello Friend dies and stamps. It turned out rather perfect, if I do say so myself.......lol
|Very CAS, but so, so pretty! I actually love these colors together and would have never reached for them, if not for the Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger!|
|Just a simple flower border to dress up the inside.|
As mentioned above, I did get inspiration from Moxie Fab Word's Tuesday Trigger Challenge. I have looked at these inspiration challenges for over 4 months and they always intimidate the heck out of me. I mean, have you ever seen the things that everyone produces from these challenges??? They are just amazing and blow me away every week! When I saw this week's challenge, and I had just received my Hello Friend stamp set from PTI's newest release, I knew that I wanted to use the two together.
I also got some inspiration from Card Patterns #103 Sketch challenge. It worked perfectly with the 3 different flowers in the stamp set and I got to make some buttons, too!
BTW........Aren't you just loving the new Royal Velvet card stock that is the base of this card??? OMG, it's just luscious!!! Pairs perfectly with Memento Grape Jelly ink. I mean, PERFECTLY!
