Pinterest Inspiration Wednesday: Hi There!

Hi Everyone!

I will be the first to admit that I am a Pinterest addict. I love it, I think it is such a
brilliant concept to just be able to reference things I like at a moments notice. I try to
be a "useful" pinner by both what I pin for other people and also what I put on my boards. I try to keep in mind things that people will find useful and want to try. One of the boards I have is "Crafty Inspiration" on to which I pin cards I see as well as other crafty things that spark my curiosity and crafting eye. I decided today to actually use one of the cards that I have pinned as inspiration for my own take on the card.  Now, sometimes it's hard to give proper credit to things found on Pinterest; but this one says the original source is "JoyTaylor1975"
I loved the clean crisp design of this card and simple sentiment. I decided to use Fine Linen from Papertrey Ink as my card base; and instead of circles, I chose to do squares using pattern papers from American Crafts.
 I used my scallop squared punch from Stampin Up and my 1" square punch to cut the squares and then layered them on the card using dimensional adhesive.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I stamped it in Bermuda Bay ink by Stampin Up and added two antique copper brads. At this point, I do have to take a moment to apologize for my less then stellar photograph of my card. I'm just not a great picture taker...
I did find a couple of challenges to play along with as well.
