Papertrey Favorites

Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Celebration so far. Today the Design Team is sharing their most favorite Papertrey Ink project from last year.

For me, picking a favorite was easy. I chose this single layer card from the December release...
To me, this is as perfect as a single layer card gets. Not a single embellishment insight, but the card is in no way boring. Lately, I find my self turning to Rustic Cream card stock more and more, as an alternative to a white or cream card base. The tiny visible flecks of fibers keep things interesting.I love the subtle pattern I got when stamping the two bird cages (from Love Birds) in Vintage Touch Chai ink; it adds interest with out distracting from the focal point. A pop of color from stamping the small cage, in Dark Chocolate, and a lonely bird, in Lemon Tart, makes the perfect focal point for the "I miss you" sentiment (all from Love Birds as well).

Now, check out the rest of the Design Teams favorites...

Also, be sure to visit Nichole's blog for a super fun challenge and the chance to win the "Ultimate" Card Kit!!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
