Papertrey'sJanuary Blog Hop Case

The Papertrey Blog Hops are always inspiring. Actually, incredible might be a better word! I always bookmark multiple cards, then, lol, rarely go back and make them. This past weekend I needed to make 10-20 baby cards, so I needed ideas to CASE.

I breezed through my bookmarks... and found
this ... isn't it an incredible card??

Here's my version-



I used Spring Rain as the card base, so you can see the colors are a little bit off. Martha Stewart provided the patterned paper and the background doily. Well, actually, Kellijo sent me the MS doilies!


I must say, sometimes the Spring Rain ink works well, sometimes not. This time it did. The image from Mat Stack 2 stamps was stamped in Spring Rain then cut out with the matching >Mat Stack 2 die. I stamped the sentiment from Signature Greetings in Versafine Onyx Black. I know, I know, a bit crooked! The 1 3/4 inch Limitless layers Circle collection provided the perfect back layer scalloped circle, cut from Spring Rain cs. I sponged a bit of Spring Rain ink on the doily, just to help it stand out a bit. Lastly, the ribbon is Harvest Gold Twill.

Thanks, Jean for such an inspiring card!

This is so sweet Beth! Nice job with layering. Isn't it just fun to layer?! I would probably keep going if I didn't stop myself. :)
