I decided to step up to the plate and participate in the latest Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge. This is a first for me. I have admired the cards others have made for a while, so I jumped in. Here is the sketch and my card interpretations follow. Enjoy!
I am a little late to enter the blog hop challenge contest but I thought I would still post a card.
The challenge was to use you favorite combination of PTI colors. I decided to use ocean tides, cream and dark chocolate with my card. I absolutely love this combination. To add texture I used a little vellum and cork board. I hope you enjoy the card.

I am really enjoying this new set the Lisa Johnson designed, Flutterby Friend. The possibilities with this set are endless. Be prepared for many cards using this stamp set! I especially love the little snail that you can color any color you want! Since I was using an aqua mist card base, I used matching copics. I used dark chocolate as a contrasting color with rustic cream that was textured using my woodgrain impression plate. I finished the card off using dark chocolate buttons and some rustic jute twine. Enjoy!
I received my new stamp sets in the mail yesterday, so it was fun to break them open and play with them today. This simple set by Lisa Johnson pacts a punch! I love how simplistic its designs are but still allow you to add your own color, if desired. Enjoy!
Todays card is for a dear family who are moving accross the country. We are attending their going away party tonight. It is a bittersweet move for all involved but family is first, so they must go. They will sorely missed by many people around the Bend.
Todays card is for a friend that continues to struggles with cancer. She was to start her treatment yesterday but was too dehydrated, so hopefully tomorrow. We dropped off a batch of homemade gatorade that will bring a smile to her face. Keep fighting... the cancer will not win!
This card uses my butterfly die with some of the new felt from PTI. I used a variety of patterned papers to pull off the look. I love how the colors blend together but it still appears simple and sweet. Enjoy!
This card looks like it is on a pink background... hmm, I wonder what happened? Anyways, this card uses aqua mist as a base with leaf green butterflies and green boutique. I added a saying from Signature Greetings and some buttons and twine. I just love the colors of this card! Enjoy!
This card started with a Plum Pudding base and I added rustic white that was distressed on the edges and a finished edge of aqua mist. I used New Leaf and Say it with Style to add my saying and design. I finished it with some buttons. I like how the colors came together for this card. Enjoy!
This card incorporates some of my favorite color combinations. I used Dotty Biscotti and aqua mist paper on Kraft cardstock. I used my bloom die to cut out flowers and added some buttons. I love how it turned out! Enjoy!
