Enjoy Life

This was the first card that I made with my new Papertrey goodies. I picked up this patterned paper from Michaels a few weeks ago and used it only once. It seemed perfect for this card and it all came together very quickly.

I love the look of stamping on patterned paper, so I thought I'd try it with the new Fancy Flourishes stamp set. The paper is K&Company Que Sera Sera and it is full of color and collage and great images.

The flourish is stamped in Elegant Eggplant. The sentiment is from Star Prints - doesn't it go so well with the flourish? The patterned paper is layered on a piece of SS white that had been trimmed with my pinking blade. The card base is Lemon Tart. I inked all the edges with the new Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo. I love how these inks absorb into the paper for a soft, matte look. A new favorite! Some colorful buttons add a finishing touch! Its hockey time here in the 'Burgh, so I'm going to give the game my attention. Its been back and forth so far. Go Pens!
