Make it Monday

Today, there is a challenge going on over at Papertrey Ink – use sentiments from different stamp sets to create a card. Oh, I was all over that one! I love doing that.

I went for a monochromatic color scheme using Summer Sunrise and Lemon tart. I used sentiments from about 8 different sets. I also used the polka dot impression plate on the lemon tart background. The paper used for the mat stack die is My Minds Eye. Everything else is Papertrey Ink.

I love how this card turned out! Here’s a bookmark gift tag I did around Christmas that used the same sentiment technique.

If anyone is wondering, the brown bottle in the background of the first photo is one of two bottles I rescued from my Grandmother’s outbuilding. They looked horrible at first, full of dirt and insects. I popped them in the dishwasher and they cleaned up so well. I don’t know what the bottles were used for – it says “Benedictine” and “B and B” on one side and there’s a horseshoe on the other side. The one pictured is the smaller of the two. If anyone can give me some history, it would be appreciated.

Have a fabulous day!
