You can do it!

I have a fun and quick card to share with you today.

The inspiration for this card came from this week's LIM challenge, which challenges us to use a real object on our cards, and the warm-up challenge of this year's SAF event at the PTI blog. There were several photographs and colour combos that appealed to me, but I settled on the black and white deliciousness of the following photograph.

It was the office/school/stationary supplies that triggered me to tear a sheet from one of my small notepads (I have one at my desk, one in my craft room and usually one in my handbag) fold it in half and add a few small staples. For my little note, I used stamps from the Blue Skies set by PTI, and I used one of the borders from PTI's Ombre Builders set to stamp a border to the left and right side of my cardbase.
