Challenging myself!

TGIF! I have to say, this week flew for me. We camped from Monday-Wednesday and by the time we got home, unpacked, did laundry, put all of the camping supplies away, it was Friday!
Ok, on to my card...I've been noticing lately that I sure do use a lot of patterned paper! I mean, why not? There are SO many gorgeous papers out there and what good do they do while collecting dust in my closet? But, what about my collection of stamps, they need to be shown the love too :) So, I challenged myself to make a card without using any patterned paper. Boy was it fun.

Isn't this a fun little card? I started out by using my Papertrey Ink Journaling Lines set to make notebook paper. Next, I stamped the main image in Old Olive ink and "remember" in Chocolate ink. I used my corner rounder on the right side of the paper and sponged the edges. I popped the sentiment up on a dimensional and added a library clip to go along with the office supply theme. Some buttons & a bow and this adorable card is all done!!!

Looking for something to do this weekend? Why don't you join me by making a card without using any patterned paper? Send me a link if you play, I'd love to see what you make!!!

Have a FABULOUS weekend!!

Gorgeous! I love the design, and that wee little clip is so cute!
Um, sorry, but there is absolutely NO way I can make a card without my beloved pp, though you did a fabulous job. ;)
