PTI Anniversary Inspiration Day 1

Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 6 year anniversary and they are having daily contests, you must check it out and you have the chance to win some free goodies, and who does not like getting free stamps! Each design time member is featured on Nichole's blog showcasing several of their favorite projects. The contest is to find one that inspires you and make your own card.
I choose Ashley Cannon Newell for my inspiration and just about duplicated her baby card. When I saw this card it made me smile and also happened to have all the supplies to make it to.  That was a big plus! I did change it up just a tiny bit, I do no have PTI chicken wire so I used my chicken wire stamp from Waltzingmouse, I also changed the ribbon, trimmed the thread from the stitching and layered the front too. I don't usually use such light colors or this many different patterns for paper on my cards but I have to say I really love the end results and will be doing this again.
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card...have a wonderful day and be sure to check out Nichole's blog, you can find the link here, and play along.
