Hope Your Day is Fabulous - {MIM#174/STS#25/CC#15}

Hi there, hope you're having a good Monday so far!  Today I'm popping in to share a card that I created for a few challenges.  First, I was inspired to try the Wallpaper Stamping technique that Ashley Cannon Newell demonstrated for this week's Papertrey Ink's Make-it-Monday #174.  I loved the idea of creating a wallpaper pattern as a background using different pieces/elements from your stamp sets, very fun.  I used two PTI stamp sets, Button Boutique for my dotted grid lines and Sending You for my leaves and flowers along with Signature Greetings for my sentiment.
 The other two challenges that I was inspired by were The Card Concept Challenge #15 with it's fresh color challenge and Seize the Sketch Challenge #25 with it's fun layout.
 Thanks for stopping by!

With Sympathy

Hello!  Today I've got a sympathy card that I'm sharing.  I used the Clean & Simple sketch #300 below for my card, I'm not sure that it qualifies since I didn't use ribbon, but the sketch was my inspiration.  I always say I'm going to make a batch of sympathy cards to have at hand and some how I never get around to making them until I actually need one.  I did a bit of ghost stamping on this card and used the PTI sets Meadow Greens, Think Big Favorites #3 and Houndstooth.
Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!
