Day 5 Contest -- attempt #1


Today, Nichole announced that Papertrey Ink would be partnering with Pinterest and offered another contest. The DT each shared a photo they'd pinned and made a card using the photo as inspiration. We were to choose a photo the DT had chosen (or choose our own from Pinterest) and use it as inspiration to create a project of our own. While I was at work today, I perused the DT member's blogs, sketching out ideas for each of the pinned photos before checking out their lovely projects. However, when I got home from work, Mom duty, a stop at the library, taekwondo (our monthly black belt class) and The Mentalist (my favourite show!) got in the way of me making all of them. Instead, I got three done.

Here's the first one... where I used Ashley's pinned photo as inspiration.



I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white, vintage cream, aqua mist, kraft), stamps (label basics, bb:woodgrain, botanical silhouettes), buttons, twine and dies (label basics).

Thanks for looking!
