Papertrey Tuesday

Do you ever find inspiration in curious places? I love looking at packaging - and this cereal box quickly became 'right-click worthy' for it's unusual placement and beautiful lines. Does it speak to you like it did to me? :)

I knew that I had all the Papertrey Ink tools to make this inspiration translate into a great card, so I pulled out Kraft, Plum Pudding and Stamper's Select and got to work. For the flourishes, I used With Sympathy and for the focal image, I used Everyday Button Bits. Here's what that great inspiration led to:

I would love to see what you come up with! Send me a link if you use this inspiration piece (and we could even make this a regular challenge, if anyone is interested. Let me know!).

I hope this inspires you! Be well.

Beautiful card and beautiful inspiration piece!!

I made a card based on the packaging from an Archer Farms bag of dried fruit. The card turned out so lovely I've done several with the same theme!!

Love your card and how you took the idea from the shipping box and made a card from the same concept!
