PTI Favorites


Today is the first day of the Papertrey Ink Anniversary festivities. The challenge this morning is to be inspired by the Papertrey DT's favorite projects. Well, how do you pick just one? It seems a no brainer to think I'd be inspired by Maile's favorite, amazingly though, I chose a card by Melissa Phillips. I love her vintage-y, shabby chic style, something that doesn't come easily for me. I never seem to know what to do with this stamp set and her project simply oozed with creativity & class. I tried to add my own touches and not straight out CASE her. This was definitely a fun card to make. I didn't feel like the images needed to be perfect, the uneven stamping of some of the elements adds to the charm of the intended style.

I'm looking forward to seeing more as the Papertrey festivities continue :)

Stamps: Polka Dot Basic, Bundle of Love, Fancy Flourishes
Ink: Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Paper: Very Vanilla
Accessories: Sponges, Basic Pearl

Great vintage card. I don't do well with vintage and yet I love it. This one will be a keeper for the baby's parents, that's for sure.
