Papertrey Ink - Create Along with Us

This week at Papertrey Ink the theme is to create along with us.  The challenge - to make a card using inspiration from the design team.  The inspiration for my card came from Dawn McVey.  It's a very clean & simple design, but as Dawn posted it has a lot texture.

Here is Dawn's card.

For my card I used the recently released stamp & dies from PTI called Forget Me Not.  This is the first time I have inked up these stamps and I think this is now one of my favorites.  The sentiment was also stamps and dies from PTI called Graceful Greetings II.  I think these are really elegant and will be using these a lot in the future.  I used a vertical striped embossing folder from Stampin Up, which is a little hard to pick up on camera.  Last I added a little bling and some Stickles to the center of the flowers.

Here is my take on Dawn's card.

 Have a great weekend...



  1. Your card is as lovely as Dawn's. She did some amazing work this Release! That's a really pretty set, your flowers are beautiful! I love your striped texture (I can see it perfectly fine) Have a happy day!

  2. This is gorgeous, Linda! Love the Forget Me Not flower set (moving it up on the Wish List now) they look elegant on the striped embossed background.

  3. What a lovely card Linda! I love that forget me not stamp set too, and it looks so elegant against the vertical embossed stripes! Fabulous case of Dawn's card! 😊

  4. Beautiful card! Your new stamp sets had a great first use!

  5. Lovely. The dry embossing shows up perfectly, BTW. I love the Forget-Me-Not set, and I've made a few cards from it, but I haven't tried putting Stickles in the centers. I like it!

  6. Beautiful, serene sympathy card, Linda! Forget-Me-Nots will be on my next order for sure. Not on,y are the flowers beautiful, but I love the sentiments too.
