PTI 5th Anniversary Day 1 Challenge

Today I am positing a card made for the Papertrey Ink's 5th Anniversary Day One challenge. The challenge is to gleam inspiration from one of the fabulous Design Teams favorite projects from the year. I want to give a little shout out to the great Design Team that Papertrey Ink has. They bring out the best projects each month that always manage to get my mojo running - thank you, PTI DT!!!

My first card today was inspired by Mish's bright and colorful assortment of embellished button cards - very eye-catching! I decided to try my hand at stamping a background for the first time, and, WOW - it is not for the faint of heart. I think I need to exercise my artistic eye some more. Hehe. I also utilized one of Nichole's techniques of making score lines to separate the sentiment area. I love that this card is all one layer (minus the bling bling).

Oh, I do hope I win the big prize ... Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This one is delightful, too! Your color combo as well as matching the two patterns is just perfect! I keep thinking I can get along just fine without the argyle set-now I'm not so sure!

  2. LOVE it!!! That sure was a lot of work, but sooo worth it for this beauty!!!
