PTI MIM #196: Colorful Card Corners

Thanks, Danielle, for motivating me and showing us here how to dress up our corners for this week's Make It Monday challenge for Papertrey Ink. Because I kept thinking I had lots of time to make Christmas cards, you might say I procrastinated a tad bit and was really pushing right up to the last minute. Let's just say I got my 80 cards mailed so most people received them before Christmas. It really took the fun out of it so found it difficult to get back in that stamping room and create. Besides that, it needs a major purging and reorganizing. However, I needed a sympathy card for tomorrow when I'm meeting a dear friend for lunch who lost her traveling companion over the holidays. Without further ado, here's my creation.

I think this is a first for me using so many different stamp sets and ink colors on one card. Actually found it to be kind of fun. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Sweet Blush, Stamper's Select White, Berry Sorbet and Black (stash)
Ink: New Leaf, Winter Wiseria, Berry Sorbet, Harvest Gold, Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist and Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Ruby Reprise, Natural Beauties, Crackled Mini and Boutique Borders: Sympathy
Dies: Heart Border
Other: Black Enamel Dots (stash)

Such fun colors here! I'm happy you felt inspired to get back into your craft room. I know how that can be! A break is always nice too. :) I've been organizing also, feels good to know where everything is. Have a good day!
