Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge: Day 1

Papertrey Ink, my favourite stamp company, is celebrating its 7th 
anniversary this month and there's lots of fun activities happening!! 
Visit Nichole Heady's blog here to find out all the details.
Today's contest involves combining one Colour Scheme and one Sketch 
Inspiration on a card.  The colours and simple design make this perfect 
for a masculine card. Here's the inspiration for my project:


I made a 3" x 4" card using an arrow stamp (Framed Out #5) 
to create diagonal stripes on a Rustic Cream card front. 
 Inks: Dark Chocolate, Classic Kraft, Pure Poppy; Vineyard Berry (CTMH)

The sentiment (Hello Foxy) was stamped with Dark Chocolate ink 
 and the heart (Tag-Its #11) with Vineyard Berry (Close To My Heart).
The Stitching Impression Plate was used to give the front panel 
some texture, then mounted onto a Kraft card base. 

I used the same colour scheme to make the inside panel.
Stamps: Vintage Labels; Tiny Treats: Valentine

I'll be back soon with another Anniversary challenge.
Thanks for visiting today.
