Papertrey Ink 2007 Challenge

Good Evening everyone...

I am trying hard to play catch up with all the Papertrey Ink challenges for their 10th anniversary. We have been dealing with the aftermath of a huge snowstorm that hit us here in Ontario, the Canadian Maritimes and no doubt a large area of the eastern US as well. Thankfully one of our neighbours came over with his massive tractor and plowed us out. 

Enough about the weather....back to card making.  :)


This first card that I have made is to celebrate 2007, the first year that Papertrey Ink was in business. 

I have chosen to use the Spiral Bouquet stamp set from that year, along with Sew Simple Borders.

Very simple card, white A2 with rounded corners.

I stamped one of the tiny leaf sprigs all over and then added some cardstock cut in chevrons or zig zags or rick rack...whatever you like to call it. I stamped the little cross-stitch along the side  and then added the sentiment and the three focal flowers. Other than the zig zags, this is a one layer card so easy to mail. All inks used are Memento.

I will be back shortly with my card for 2008.
I am also entering this card in the Double D Zig Zag Challenge.

Thanks for dropping by. Cheers.
