A {new} technique ...

Papertrey Ink began hosting 'Make It Monday' technique video classes this week, so I thought I'd listen in on Erin Lincoln's sentiment stamping technique class today when I had a few minutes to spare.  WOW - what a SIMPLE idea and what a BEAUTIFUL result when you combine like sentiments to create a background paper for the base of your card!

I used my favie color combo - pink, aqua, vanilla and kraft ... {swoon}!!!  Don't you {heart} these soft, pastel, soothing colors?  They make me SMILE :)  This photo does not even begin to do this pretty little card justice -- it's simply lovely in real life!  I cannot begin to tell you how much FUN I had designing this card ... it was a blast scouring through all my PTI stamps to see how many I could find with the same sentiment.  I was {surprised} at how many sets I actually own - YIKES!  Sssshhh ... don't tell my hubby!
