Paper Dolls Challenge #7

It's Laurie Beth's turn to host this week's Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge and it's a fun one!  Check it out here.

Laurie Beth's challenge is right up my alley! There are two parts to the challenge:  create your own patterned paper and keep the card clean and simple.  These are two things that I love to do.

I got the inspiration for my card from Debbie Olson's post here.  I really liked the simple layout.

I've been wanting to try Nichole's tip of using the scor-tape with glitter. I'm so glad I did. This is one technique I'll be using often. It looks even more elegant in person. I hate it when glitter rubs off so easily. That's not the case with this technique.

Here's how I finished the inside. Clean and simple.
