You're So Sweet


I created my very first card using Papertrey stamps today and I love them.



This card features their newly released Everyday Button Bits stamps, you stamp and then finish off with a button! So fun!

I decided to use the stem and leaves to create button apples(buttons from my stash) then used a sentiment from the same stamp set. Inks used were CTMH chocolate and topiary. And as this month's Papertrey Bloghop challenge was to incorporate not only a Papertrey product but also text, I used the script embossing folder along with paper by October Afternoon to create the background.




Ovals were created with Quickutz and Spellbinders with all edges inked in Ranger Tea Dye. I finished it up with ribbon from Inque Boutique and some Papertrey twine. I also popped up the oval on pop dots for a bit of a 3D effect.

And I'm dedicating this card to Regan and Dee who included me in their monthly Papertrey order, thank you so much ladies, you are so sweet!
