Faux Papertrey Ink Pattern Paper

Well, I just saw that Nichole Heady over at Papertrey Ink had given a challenge to some of the ladies on her Design Team. The challenge was to pair their favorite clear product with new Everyday blessings patterened paper . Here is what Nichole did. And also the others:
Well, I wanted to play but I don't actually have any of the new paper...yet!! But I didn't want that to interfere with my fun. So, I decided to make some FAUX Papertrey Ink Patterned Paper by using my Papertrey Ink stamps. As well, I must confess, I also do not own the new PTI colored ink yet either....so I used the colors that I have that are the closest... Soft Sky and River Rock from Stampin' Up. So, what do you think?? Is it close?? Do I get bonus points for trying??
For the clear item, I used one of my yummy Maya Road clear flowers. Then, using my Faux Pattern Paper, I attached it using spray adhesive and then cut around the flower using my hobby knife. I attached a large brad from Making Memories in the center. The rest of the card is pretty straight forward. I stamped the same small images onto the strip of Soft Sky using Versamark ink. And the sentiment was stamped with River Rock inside of a piece of Hodgepodge Hardware from Stampin' Up. All of this was placed onto a River Rock card base. I kept the rest of the card fairly simply since I wanted the pattern paper flower to take center stage!!
Well, I hope you like my attempt at this great challenge!! Make sure you check out the rest of the ideas from the Papertrey Ink Design team!!
Thanks for visiting.
