Papertrey Ink's Create Along with Us: August 2015

as it allows me to CASE one of their fabulous DT's projects.

This month, I was inspired by Betsy Veldman's wonderful card:

I really love the inking she did on the background, 
along with the white frame for the pumpkin.

I decided to create two cards, using my PTI Guiding Lights stamp set.

I used some post-it notes to mask & inked the top of my cards.
I diecut the Guiding Lights lighthouse and stamped it, along with the sentiment.
The rectangle diecut is from Betsy's Shakers MIM kit.

This card is similar, but I used the Shaker Shapes: Circle die,
added some birds and the sentiment from Light of Life.

Thanks for looking!

You've taken elements from Betsy's card, worked your magic and the results: outstanding! Your framed lighthouse, set atop the sponged background, makes for two gorgeous cards. Inspired and inspiring!
