Celebrating the Past, Present, & Future with Papertrey Ink - 2011

Hello friends.  Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 10th Anniversary, and todays focus is on the stamp sets that came out in 2011.  Garden Variety has fast become one of my favorite sets, even though I didn't purchase it till just last year...I know, what was I thinking?!!  I love using this stamp set on kraft cs, and this is what I came up with:

I think I used most of the stamps from this set on my card (more inside the card which I forgot to take a picture of...grrr!) along with some of the kraft and Ripe Avocado Pattern Pack papers.  I also sponged a lot of the edges of this card which I haven't done in a loooong that technique out of style now?  I still really like the way it makes a card more vintage looking though!  A little bit of fussy cutting and some Pure Poppy for accents finished off my card.

Lots and lots of BEAUTIFUL cards from 2011 and in the gallery, so check them all out and then play along...there's a $25 gift certificate up for grabs if you play!  You can find all the info you need right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)
