Hi PTI fans! 
I love Mondays that fall  on Papertrey's release week.
We are asked to case the wonderful designers who take the new product 
and create and design fabulous things!

Sounds easy? Fun yes, easy no. Just try picking one out of 76 glorious

I finally settled on a beauty by Michelle Leone, featuring Betsy Veldman's new
Beautiful Berries: Autumn. You can see Michelle's card, and a card set she did here:

I used the stencil from Herb Garden, as Michelle did, and
substituted my vine with one from Embellished Elegance.
Inked with Summer Sunrise and Harvest Gold
Vine inks: Simply Chartreuse, Orange Zest, Scarlett Jewel.
So glad to use that lovely set again! 
Double Ended Banners and Inspired: Blessed.
Stitched die from Noted: Scalloped A2.
The Inspired: Blessed stamp set has several sentiments that go along
with the word, Blessed, but couldn't decide which to use.
Decided I'd wait until the need arises to add, 'so very', or 'grateful, thankful', 
or one of the other lovely sayings.

  1. Me too and yes it is very hard to choose! Happy Wednesday afternoon to you Nancy! If only we lived a bit closer we could have been creating together. We both chose Michelle and both used Blessed!
    Your card is so beautiful no need to buy the new stamps :) what a beautiful card Nancy! I keep forgetting to use that stenciled from the herb set! The berries look amazing!

  2. Simply gorgeous. I love the card you created as well as the one you CASED. Michele is one of my favorites to CASE. Love your vibrant color scheme.

  3. It seems like it gets harder to pick just one card each month for me too, but I love the one you chose to CASE from Michele! Hers is so pretty but oh my gosh Nancy, so is yours!! I just love the bright Fall colors you used and the vine from Embellished Elegance is it!! :0)

  4. A wonderful choice in Michele's card and you've CASEd it beautifully!! This is light airy and fabulous!

  7. What a beauty, Nancy ... the delicate vines with their sweet blooms are fantastic against that delicious warm sun! Blessed indeed! I have this set and it's rather under-used ... thanks for the gorgeous inspiration! Anita :)

  8. Nancy, what a warm looking card. And it reminds me I should use my Embellished Elegance set more often!

  9. It is so hard choosing just one card to CASE and you chose well. Your CASE of Michele's card is fabulous! I'm so inspired to pull my set of EE out and give it some love. What a festive fall card!
