Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #13

Hello there!  I have been MIA this past week as I've been on vacation the past 9 days.....part of the time was on a family vacation to Branson and the other days just hanging out with my kids before school starts up in a week!  Ackk....where has the summer gone?  We had such a great time in Branson.......rented a condo, went to Schlitterbahn and Silver Dollar City, rented a pontoon on Table Rock Lake, rode go-carts, and just had a good time with family! 

I have to give a huge apology to my fellow Papertrey Dolls.....I haven't kept up on these challenges this summer.  I will try harder though!!  Anyway, I thought I would get caught up on some challenges here in the next few days.  So first up, is the challenge hosted by Leish and it was all about using some material as inspiration!  I really liked this challenge......so I got out a new scrub top I bought over a month ago to serve as my inspiration piece.  Scrubs have such unique color combinations....sometimes I get out a scrub catalogue just for ideas! 




Here is my scrub top that I used as inspiration!



Thanks so much for visiting!!

It sounds like you really had a wonderful time Amy. I can't believe school starts so soon for you! We don't go back until September 8th!
I love the embossed BG...what stamp is that? I also love the scrub top you used for inspiration...fun!

What a fantastic card! Love how you used your inspiration piece! I wish I could wear scrubs to school - they are so cute and I wouldn't have to stand and stare at my closet everyday!

Mary said...

That's a great take on that top...adorable! I wish the Papertrey Chicks group I am on would be more active like the Dolls...I guess I need to join in on their challenges.

I love how the black background really makes those beautiful flowers pop. Your vacation sounds great. I will be MIA for some time we have many day trips and a get away planned in August and back to school 9/8.

Great colors, Amy! I especially like how you put the sentiment on the scalloped border--a little outside the box/a lot fun!
