PTI ~ Make It Monday Challenge

Today's challenge over at Nichole Heady's blog focused on creating a collage background. Dawn McVey gave an awesome video tutorial on how to build your collage background. All I can say is.... I'M ADDICTED!!!

I've always liked the look of a collage background and have tried it myself once, maybe twice. But, today's tutorial really helped me think outside the box! I couldn't wait to get to my craft room, still in my pj's and slippers and start creating. Here's my take on the collage background.

As you can see, I didn't deviate much from Dawn's design.
Here is the inside of the card:

Since the card base was made using Winter Wisteria, I opted to add a white writing space and dress it up a little.
All supplies used are from PaperTrey Ink.
*Ink Colors ~ Fine Linen, Winter Wisteria, Lemon Tart, Limeade Ice, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate & black (embossed)
*Stamp sets used ~ Background Basics Text Style & Tin Type, Think Big Favorites #13, Postmarks, Rosie Posie & Birthday Basics
*Cardstock used ~ Winter Wisteria & Soft Stone

Thanks for visiting! Blessings~ Birgit
