PaperTrey Ink 8th Anniversary: Maile Belle's Inspiration Card Challenge

 This is going to be a super quick post today. Have you been following the festivities at Nichole Heady's blog? It is PaperTrey Ink's 8th anniversary and there are TONS of challenges going on. You need to check it out!!

Today I sharing a card that was inspired by Maile Belle's. Here is my card:

Here is Maile's card, garnered from her post here:                                              

As you can see, it is not totally the same. I did not have all the stamp sets that Maile used so I had to improvise. I die cut the bottom of the card front using a small scallop die, rather then a large scallop like she did. I did have the heart die she used but had to use a stamp from the "2010 Love Tag" stamp set for my heart.

I did not have her sentiment so used an Avery Elle sentiment, as well as a little image from the "Love Note" set. I then covered the tiny red garnish with glossy accents.

I completed my card with a panel of Poppy red card stock underneath the front of the card and added some red twine.

I love Maile's card and think my CASE did not come out half bad!!

I thank you for stopping by!! Have a wonderful day!!

This is a terrific CASE of her card!! You had such great ideas for improvising in the areas where you did not have the exact supplies!! Love the way you crisscrossed that twine across the top!! Looks so good and the addition of glossy accents to your red flourish was a terrific idea!! This card stands out as a very superb one!!! Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
