Inky Love...

Hello and Happy Saturday!  Man, it is beautiful here today.  So to explain the title of this post is to admit to stamp neglect.  Do you have those stamps that you just had to have, just needed to fill that empty spot in your collection?  Well the Houndstooth Background was one of those for me.  I still love it but I don't use it as often as I should.  So this card will be entered in Passion for Papertreys "Inky Love" challenge.  Now the starting point for this card was the very interesting purse below.  The photo is from the Runway Inspired Challenge #23.
My card is really a single layer of white cardstock that I did a partial die cut of a circle.  I masked the area around the circle and stamped with the houndstooth in black. Then rolled the circle to the outside of the card and pinned in place with a mini brad.  Stamped the hello from Papertrey in red ink on the inside of the card to show through the window.  I had some black glimmer cardstock on my desk so I cut a ring from it to frame the little window.

I also thought this followed the Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge too. 
 The sketch is below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hope you will come to visit again!
