Papertrey Ink MIM #90 and a little inspiration!

Good morning everyone.  Today I have a card to share with you that came from a very unusual place!  We all know that inspiration is everywhere and that includes the break room at work.  I went to get a cup of coffe before my shift and I found this beautiful mug sitting on the microwave.  Well, I did what any of us crafty cardmakers would do.....I took a picture.  LOL 
I knew I just had to recreate that design onto a card as soon as possible.  I just can't resist the pink and brown with polka dots and stripes!
The very next day I was over at Nichole's blog to see what the make it monday challenge would be and I instantly knew what I was going to make.
Here is the card that was inspired by a mug and the Papertrey Ink MIM challenge.

(inside of card)
The Make it Monday challegne was to create a focal point sentiment with stamps and dies.
I used the sentiment "I believe in you" from Flower Fusion #12 and I substituted the word "YOU" with the block alphabet dies.  I stamped the roses inside and out with stamps from The Sweet Life stamp set. On the inside I die cut the roses with The Sweet Life dies.  The polka dot background is from the Bitty Dot Basics paper pack. 
I hope you are all enjoying your day and I hope everyone gets out and votes today!!!!
If you need any information on voting Nichole has put together a great blog post on the history of women's right to vote with some informational links on voting in your state.
Have a great day!
I already am!
 I really love how the card turned out!
