The Monday Buzz, with a Card using Pink By Design

Hello all--can you believe it is already Monday. This week is jammed packed for me. A lot going on at work with a big trade show in Vegas next week and my big move all of four miles from where I live now.
I have been packing all weekend and have come to the conclusion that I have way to much of everything--scrap stuff, wine, ties, shoes, suites, CLOTHES! I have also been getting rid of a lot of stuff but good lord have I collected a ton of stuff.
On to the project. I made this card using two Pink by Design stamp sets--one is a retail exclusive and the other a classic back ground.

The background is the Wired Background that I thought looked a bit like a honey comb. I used CTMH solid Creme Brulee paper and ink (no embossing shocker I know) for the base, Colonial White cream, and Topiary green paper.  The patter is from K&Company stack I got a Michael's for $1.99.  Got to love a deal.
Here is a close up of the layers.  I used chalk in on all the edges in the same color to give it an earthy brown ground.  I also put pop dots under the large cream section and the solid green section to give a bit of a 3D effect. 
The sentiment is from the new Pink by Design Honey Pie set that you can get at OH MY CRAFTS.  This set has some great BEE sentiments! 
I took some of the scraps and finished off the inside.  This is a great gender neutral card so if you need something of a man--you could lift this one to great success. 
Thanks for stopping by today and I love hearing your feed back.  This month is crazy and I am so thankful that you all stick with  me and through all my crazy travels and life goings ons!
Make it a great one


  1. love cards that can be either gender.. what a cute saying! tfs :)

  2. Nice card! I like the wired background stamp. Good luck on your move!

  3. We make so many extra fancy ones that when we make a plain one we think it's missing something. The plain ones are so beautiful as this one is and don't need a thing added. It's really lovely Bryan.

  5. Bryan, I'm always amazed by your projects. Simple yet they turn our wonderful! I don't know what you do with all your traveling but I know I would LOVE to carry your bags - where ever you may go. Your trips sound so amazing and you always bring those little treats you find into your projects and cards! So tell me... did you get to meet any of the NFL Hall of Fame inductee?!
