papertrey august blog hop challenge

The Papertrey Ink had a brown bag challenge.  Since I've been working on being "green," I don't usually have paper bags in the house.  I did find one beat up grocery bag (can't get my husband to use the totes every time).  So I cut it up and used that on my cards.  I had fun and made two cards.


stamp: Papertrey Ink pencil, apple, & "back to school"
ink: Impress mustard & poppy, VersaFine onyx black
other: gingham ribbon, Marvy markers (brown, pink grey, pine green)



stamp: Papertrey Ink alphabet letters, Impression Obsession apple
ink: VersaFine onyx black
other: Prismacolor pencils, Memory Box jewel stickers cherry red

Two great cards! Love the border punch on the first one and the alphabet "window" on the second.

Good for you on going so green that you had to scrounge around for a paper bag! Love the way you used it on your cards. I especially like that circle on the second one. Great job!
