Oops! Missed the deadline for the color challenge!

Well, I guess it's ok, since I added that cute girl friday paper too, I suppose I wasn't totally keeping it to the challenge. I also used last weeks sketch from sfytt. The paper is PTI, except girl friday, of course! The butterfly was also from the nestability I borrowed from my enabling friend, Cindy. I used PTI text backgrounds & flourishes, spring moss ribbon. The border punch is fiskars, and I punched a couple of small circles in the scallop and put tiny twinkles inside the card to show on the front when it's closed, but it doesn't show well in the pic.... This is the birthday card that goes with Marissa's birthday present!

Happy Birthday Marissa!

I've been loving this Cosmo Cricket 'girl friday' paper for awhile, but trying to use what I have instead of buying & hoarding more! Teehee! I made this for a friend's daughter's birthday, and it sounded like the colors would be just right, so great excuse to buy some!!! My friend & enabler, Cindy, let me borrow her MS butterfly punch & nestabilities buttterflies. I used PTI text backgrounds on the lemon tart butterflies- one in fresh snow, and the pink is stampology (I think). Also used the new PTI tea ink to distress the larger butterfly- and I made that ribbon embellie myself(!) with PTI spring moss ribbon. Buttons from my stash & there's a rhinestone on the small butterfly as well as antenna from the new PTI twine, but I don't think those show well in the pic. I hope she loves it!

Week 6 Raspberry Suite Color Challenge

I have 2 cards for the color challenge today! The colored paper is PTI, the white base is from my stash. I embossed the brown in the cuttlebug (I forget the name of the folder!) and stamped with the beautiful PTI Life set in versamark- on the second card I added prisma glitter too. I found this ribbon in the dollar section at Michaels! Buttons are from my stash. Stitched together with matching pink thread.

SFYTT sketch

Thought I'd try my hand at another sketch! Supplies are from all over! A friend gave me these flower embellies, hence the purple... :) SU! ink, provo craft paper leaf paper, pti card base, ribbon from my stash. Not sure who the stamps are by.... Those are tiny twinkles in the corners and the bird's eye.
