Clean and Simple with Papertrey Ink

When I first saw this new set being released by Papertrey Ink, I knew I wanted it. I just love the overall style of it. Since my new goodies arrived yesterday afternoon, this morning I wanted to make a card with it. I looked at the sketch challenge on Split Coast Stampers and decided I'd probably spend all day trying to make it. Susan has posted some cards that she made following a sketch from the Clean and Simple Stamping Blog, so I thought that I'd go and take a look. I found a layout from January that I really liked. So that's my layout, and this card went together quickly! I think a little paper piercing on the bottom would complete the whole layout, but I tend to squish my paper all up and not do the rows straight. So for now I'm leaving it as is.

Stamps: PTI Life
Ink: PTI Hibiscus Burst, PTI Lavender Moon, PTI Plum Pudding

Doesn't that CAS blog have the best sketches? I like the one you chose to go with that iamge. Stamping a scene and seperating it gives it such an interesting look. I think it looks just right without the piercing. I can usually do an ok job with that technique. I just rarely do it because I don't have the patience to add all those little piercings.
