Amber Ink's First Pinny Party!

I have a soft spot for Amber Ink -- after all, they trusted ME, a brand-new blogger, to design for them for a month last year. Not to mention they have incredibly fun digital images and digital paper! So when they announced their latest blog party, I really wanted to play along!

Here's the deal -- if you hang out on Pinterest at all, you may have pinned lots of great, inspirational ideas that you plan to use... someday. But of course instead, you just pin more terrific ideas... for someday. Well, the brilliant minds at Amber Ink are encouraging us to actually take our pins and use them! 
So the weekend was a little lot busier than my average one, but I did want to play in the first ever weekend Pinny Party! Here's the pin I chose be inspired by: 

I like to use music on my Christmas cards, and really liked the clean and simple design of this. So of course my end product turned out quite differently:

It really didn't seem right not to use some Amber Ink iPaper for their first official Linky party, so I picked some Bubble Fizz: Green iPaper for a fun background. I also decided I didn't want floating ornaments, so hung them with some silver elastic cord. Not as clean and graphic as my inspiration, but I think it turned out kind of fun! 
Hope your weekend was great, whether it was a long Thanksgiving one or not!

Supplies: white cardstock, Amber Ink bubble fizz: green iPaper, silver pearl paper, Hero Arts Get Merry! stamps, Colorbox cranberry ink, Spellbinders Nestabilities 1 1/2 inch circle die, silver cord, corner-rounder punch Pin It Now!

This is beautiful, Linds! I love the green bubbles ipaper and those ornaments with music notes and snowflakes are stunning. Such a fabulous design.

Well I think your card is way more pinnable, it's like a party on paper! Love the snowflake and song music mix as well as those fabulous rounded corners!

I have resisted the lure of Pinterest so far, but I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out...Especially after seeing what you made! I love that bubble paper!

Love that Bubble Fizz paper! So fun and cheery for Christmas! And I'd have to put string on my ornaments too - they're just not something that should be floating!
