College Bound


Yea!! My new Papertrey Ink package came in the mail today!  I only had a little time to play since I was gone most of the day but I HAD to ink up a few sets!  This card features "Enjoy the Ride" and "A Little Argyle".  How fun are these stamp sets!!


Here you can see the details a little better.  I used crystal rhinestones for the headlights...love that touch.  I also tied my bow only half way again.  I really like doing that to change things up a bit and be a little less traditional. 


I used 3 of the argyle stamps on Rustic White cardstock to make this background strip.  I started with the black lined image, then added the orange diamonds, followed by the dashed lines in Hibiscus Burst.  My husband said that this was an "interesting" color combo but I love it! :)

Hope you enjoyed the card today!  Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Enjoy the Ride, A Little Argyle
Paper: Rustic White, Orange Zest
Ink: Hibiscus Burst, Tea Dye Duo, Palette Noir & Orangerie
Other: Crystal Rhinestones, Pop Dots, Ribbon
