Adore You

Pin It

I bought this yummy paper and have been staring at it for about two weeks.  Finally I got up the courage to cut it up and I'm so tickled that I did!  Not only can it count towards being a valentine, but I made it using some not-so-traditional colors.  Yeah me for thinking outside the box!
It's BG paper, so I don't want to mess up when I use it 'cause then I feel like I wasted "the good stuff"!  This is even better than the card I had pictured in my head- seriously that NEVER seems to happen.  Gosh if it looks even half as good as what I pictured I'm over the moon most of the time. :)  Even more awesome- this was a 10 minute card- if that!!  From start to finish it was just a matter of cut 'n paste.  A little stamping on the kraft base, glue, die cut, tie a ribbon and D-O-N-E done! 
The card base (kraft), ticket die (index card), and stamped trees (birch trees) on the base are all from Memory Box.  The ribbon is Bo Bunny and the pattern paper is Basic Grey (Piccadilly)- the green it is mounted on is the reverse side.  The orange mat for the ticket is Bazzill (I think) and the glittery sentiment paper is actually already on printed paper from My Minds Eye (lost and found).

I'm playing with all these folks that I adore so much:
The Spotted Chick- Krafty Thursday
Basic Grey Challenges- Favorite Things- (mine are dies)
