I am really into the "lined paper" look right now. Making Memories has an amazing line called Noteworthy that's full of fun papers and accessories that I love!

I started by stamping my Lined Paper BG stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms in Versamark for a subtle background foundation. I was thrilled when this image came out!! Think of all the possibilities! :) The chipboard alpha pieces are from the Noteworthy line and are adhesive-backed... making it easy to make a fun sentiment. If you look closely (click on pic to enlarge), you can see the lined paper print on the letters. Isn't that fun!?!

I stamped the little bird (from Kim Hughes' Pretty Birds Collection - CHF) onto.... you guessed it --- lined paper! The paper was a little pale, so I used a Buttercream Copic marker to add a hint of color. (I also colored the bird's beak, feet, & wing with Copics)

This card is funky and fun! I challenge you to try out this color combo too! Link your card to this post if you can! I'd love to see what you come up with!
