PTI Inspired By Challenge (Ashley Cannon Newell)

I cheated a little bit today.  I just gave my husband a card three days ago for our 32nd wedding anniversary that was inspired by Ashley Cannon Newell's card which was front and center today on Nichole Heady's blog.  There is a super prize package up for grabs and sharing a card inspired by one of the Design Team is how you can enter.  Since I just made this card and it is actually sitting on my husbands night stand this very minute, I decided to share it again and use it as my entry for this contest.   Oh, how I would love to win this prize packiage.  Make sure you check out this link to the contest.

Although Ashley Cannon Newell has only been on PTI's Design Team a short while, you will see quite a few of her gorgeous projects pinned on my Pinterest board.  I love her style, her mini scrapbooks and I have never ever seen better card photography than hers.  Here is the card that she made back in November that inspired my entry:

Here is the card I made:
Although I used a Waltzingmouse sketch for the design of this card, it has PTI all over it!  I used Background Basics Newsprint for the background, Tiny Tag diecuts for the sweet little tags, Background Basic Hearts stamped on each tag, dark chocolate twine and check out those mini clothespins the tags are hanging from.  I loved them so much on Ashley's original card, I ordered some from the Etsy shop where she buys hers, Way...to Bead.   I have a whole bunch of them now, so I predict lots of cards with little tags on them in my future!  I would like to thank Ashley for the inspiration she brings to every person who has the pleasure of reading her blog and admiring her gorgeous projects.
Happy 5th Anniversary PTI.

Such a gorgeous card...
love the blues and browns...
and those adorable little tags! :)
I know Warren loved it...
even if he didn't "mush" over it...
because he's a man...
and men don't do that!
Though they will escort a paper heart to Disneyland for a little guy's kindergarten project...
I just adore him!! :)
