Papertrey Ink Anniversay Challenge

I'm sneaking one in. I've been a lover and follower of Papertrey ink since their beginnings, 5 yrs. ago.  I wanted to join in on the Annivesary celebration. Day 5 Challenge-Pinterest

So I've got a card to share that was inspired by this wood sign that I pinned on Pinterest.
While I looove the giant yellow heart, I didn't have any PTI hearts to work with.  I also needed a birthday card for my middle guy. So I used the PTI Woodgrain Impression plate (one of my FAVE PTI products) and the cute airplane from Fly Away.  I also added a bit of hills and grass with the cool die called In the Meadow.  I also am paying homage to the very first PTI set...Papertrey.

You can see I stamped the airplane in Summer Sunrise..... it's my big yellow heart. I kept the rustic theme going with some distressing to the edges of my kraft cs.  It did need a little something else, so I added a ribbon tab and a few buttons.  Then I stopped and I like it.  I know my son will, too. Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I LOVE your take on this!!! That's what "inspiration" is seriously about....
    you didn't just replicate it in a different medium you truly were inspired by the style and made it fit your design.

    I'm honored to be the creator of the sign that inspired you and I love your design.
    Thank you!

  2. This is so great! Love how you made the inspiration your own!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
