New Mercies

Papertrey Ink is hosting yet another amazing giveaway, with ten chances to make cards that might be randomly selected.  I work best with deadlines, and have needed to build up my card stash, but just have not been motivated. So, this is great for me!  Each day has featured stamp sets from the ten years Papertrey has been in business, with the challenge to use the set if owned, or take inspiration from the examples, which is what I have done. This card follows after the "Text Box" set featured on February 11th, using two of my papertrey sets: New Every Morning, and Happy Hexagons.  The focal image is not a text box, but I "converted" it by (after first stamping a few hexagons in a different shade), stamping it with versamark and embossing with clear embossing powder, then framing it with decoratively cut post it notes, then sponged pink all over the space. I then removed the post-its, then ironed off the embossing powder.
