My Favorite...

Nichole from Papertrey Ink challenged us to go through our cards and projects from 2010 and share our very favorite one again! Well, after some thought I knew which card it had to be!


I designed this during the release when PTI came out with their Green Boutique patterned paper. I was a fairly new PTI customer at that time, even though I had been a huge fan of theirs for a long time before!  I was so inspired by the color combinations in that line of paper that I wanted to use them on a card. 


I really loved how the stamps made making this patterned paper so much fun and so simple too!


And, I guess another reason that I really loved this card was because Nichole chose to feature it on her blog!! How COOL is that?!  Talk about a dream come true!! You can see that post here and a screen shot below! 



Fun!! Fun!! I can't wait to see what others choose as their favorite!!  Thanks for visiting!!

That color combination makes me happy every time I see it. Great job stamping the background. Love the look of the border in the left corner.

I remember this! I remember loving that beautiful patterned paper you made. It looked professional enough to be used in one of PTI's paper packs! It was beautiful and how thrilling it must have been for you to be recognized by Nichole. I can only imagine what that felt like.
