Papertrey Ink 8th Anniversary - Sketch and Colour Challenge

Well, the celebrations have begun at Papertrey Ink. They are celebrating their 8th Anniversary with contests, prizes and new products. The first challenge is a sketch and colour recipe challenge - you can check it out here.

A dear friend of mine is having surgery next week so I created this card for her. The colour recipe I chose included Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado and Aqua Mist. The inks I used were as close as I could get to these. The colour I used in place of Berry Sorbet does have a pink tinge to it but you can't see it in the photo.

Stamps - Inside & Out: Well Wishes, Rosie Posie, Rosie Posie Part 2, Filled With Joy (PTI)
Dies - Tag Sale #3, Building Blocks (PTI)
Paper - Stampers Select White, Aqua Mist (PTI)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Sunflower, Olive, Juniper, Smoothie (CTMH)
Other - beads, white baker's twine, various ribbons and fibers

  2. Beautiful! I love your take on the sketch!

  3. Love the use of the mini tags on your tag - very cute!

  4. This is such a lovely card. I love how you strung the smaller tags across the larger one, and your ribbons are so pretty. Beautiful job. ;-)

  5. Wow! This is just stunning! You lined up Rosie Posie perfectly. I always seem to struggle with lining it up properly. I'm sure this will bring a much needed smile to your friends face. You're a sweet friend, for sure!
