Are Your Friends Naughty or Nice?

May! It's May! And time for a new monthly challenge at Naughty or Nice Challenges:

It seemed to be a challenge for most people to come up with a naughty card for last month's In Bloom challenge, and now friendship? I think I managed to throw just a little bit of naughtiness into my contribution: 

For some reason, I just had to have this Uncorked set from Papertrey Ink. I think it will get lots of use, and I was happy to christen it for this card. For once, I picked my patterned paper first and then chose which green ink matched! And luckily, it was an ink with matching cardstock for the mat. I know the cork is sized to fit in the bottle, but isn't it fun popping out this way? And let's not talk about the trouble I went to making sure the two halves of the bottle and the sentiment lined up the way I wanted them to. And I have to admit, I have more than a few friends I could send this to. ;) 
There is lots more inspiration from my fellow design team members over on the Naughty or Nice blog! And then I hope you'll join us -- you have until the 25th of May. 

Supplies: white & Stampin' Up garden green cardstock, Crate Paper Random patterned paper, Papertrey Ink Uncorked stamps, Versafine onyx black, Stampin' Up garden green & Martha Stewart putty inks, pop-dot squares

Pin It Now!

mmm, Garden Green. Love that color. And I can see the lining up challenges, which is why I don't buy stamps like this. I know me pretty well.

I also prefer the cork un-corked like you have it. Nicely done! This challenge is on my list for this weekend.

Elegant and edgy; you do the two so well!

Uncorked is perfect - and ohhhh stamping all of it straight? oy vey. You'd need to uncork one after that :)
