Every time I think I'm going to put aside Papertrey Ink's Everyday Classics stamp set and give some inky love to something else, out comes another need to use the set, this time just for one of the perfect sentiments. Crazy thing is — I didn't even buy that set, I earned it! If you've been visiting here much, you probably have noticed that I LOVE Papertrey Ink. I only "discovered" them last September, but since then have purchased many times and I never ceased to be amazed by their products and the design team's creativity. They are just so impressive! Anyway, they have a reward program that you can read about here. That is how I earned this fantastic set. Sorry — you can't buy it. But you can start earning next year's set, which I'm sure will be equally as wonderful as this one.
Well, that was a digression. I really came to show you another challenge card that I completed. This one is for 2 Sketches 4 You, Kazan's Sketch 27:
Ken and I gave this card to one of the pastor's of the church where I'm a preschool director — yesterday was his last day. Inside I quoted Psalm 1:1-3 (about the godly flourishing like trees planted on the riverbank) and wrote a personal note from us. Not only are we wishing him well, we're praying him well, as well. :)
AND TELL: stamps are from Autumn Leaves (Wild Trees) and PTI (Everyday Classics); cardstock is PTI (Spring Rain & Stampers Select White) and Stampin' Up (Old Olive); patterned paper is mostly from K & Company with the big dots paper being from my stash; ink is PTI (Dark Chocolate) for the sentiment and Versamark for the tree, embossed with clear embossing powder; that great button is from PTI (Vintage Buttons in Dark Chocolate) and the ribbon is PTI's Fresh Snow Twill. I also used a circle nestability, a label die from Stampin' Up (Lots of Tags, Label 1), and, of course, a few Stampin' Dimensionals.
