Thanks for everything

Nichole Thanks

Today we are having a mini blog hop as a way to say thank you to Nichole and all the team from Papertrey Ink.

I have never seen a company so devoted to its customers as Papertrey Ink. Thank you for providing us with the highest quality products, the most innovative ideas, the greatest inspiration , the nicest group of designers and behind-the-scenes people, and the most supportive and encouraging online forum!

For my card, I tried to create a card that emulated Nichole elegant and classic style. I stamped the damask background with Versamark onto Hawaiian Shores cardstock, and heat embossed it with black detail ep (Filigree). I used True Black satin ribbon, Fillable Frame 4 and the sentiment from Year of Flowers: Violets.

Thanks for stopping by!

Melissa
