Just a Note Card – Papertrey Ink October 2016 Blog Hop Challenge



Time for the Papertrey Ink October 2016 Blog Hop Challenge!

Here is the inspiration:


I was inspired by the wood grain background, and the orange leaves.

So, I pulled out a sheet of birch wood veneer paper (16 pt, I think) that I got in a sampler pack from Paper-Papers. LOVE this faded, grayish birch.

My beloved “Out on a Limb” set would give me a branch & orange leaves. “Just the Ticket” would give me a sentiment that would tie in the music background¬† (Hero Arts, embossed in copper on vellum).

Here is a close up of the copper embossing and the lovely wood veneer:


It was nice to participate in a challenge again!
