I am going to try to play along with some of the Papertrey Ink Anniversary challenges this week. I’m not making any promises! But I am going to try. 😉 I just really need some creative fun right now.
On one hand, it is great to participate in the fun. On the other hand, they make the challenges nearly impossible sometimes – like today’s challenge asking us to be inspired by ‘just’ one of the Design Team’s favorite items. I mean, really.
And I know we can do several projects (if one’s time permits, LOL!), but it’s tough to narrow it down when they are all so good, know what I mean?
Well, after a bit of deep thought, I finally went with Debbie Olson’s card found here. I really adore Debbie’s style, so clean and pretty. And I also adore her abilities with Copic markers! Wow.
So here is my little offshoot of her beautiful creation:
Some aqua MME paper in the background and also for the banner. I used my favorite Harvest Berries stamp set, and also my other favorite Communique Curves stamp set for the sentiment. Added a bit of edge inking and some stitching, too. The button is a neglected supply finally being used- Yay!
I also paired up this card for the Paper Players #131 challenge for a sympathy card.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
