I found a new challenge site, Inkspirational – to me anyway – and I fell in love with this bold color combination.

I used PaperTrey Ink’s Coverplate Circle die and cut out a variety of papers.  I enlisted the help of my sister and together we came up with several backgrounds – my favorite is this one my sister came up with.  It’s too bad most of the pattern is covered up but you get the idea!

I’m getting a chance to play with a few of my new toys too – a new stamp from Lili of the Valley and the Bow Die from MFT.  I  purchased both of the bow dies from MFT and I love them both – be prepared to be bombarded by my use of them!

Papers: Cardstock from PaperTrey Ink, My Favorite Things and AC Cardstock

Stamp: Lili of the Valley

Dies: Ovals – Spellbinders, Circle Coverplate – PaperTrey Ink, Bow – My Favorite Things

Embellishments: Felt – PaperTrey Ink, Rhinestones and Ribbon

Thanks so much for the visit – stop by again anytime!  Dee
