{PTI Color Challenge}

Have you been to Nichole Heady's blog lately to find out what's up with PaperTrey Ink's Second Anniversary? She is having all sorts of give aways and sneak peeks of what's to come in the next year. Today she posted a color challenge---you can enter to win over $100 of cardstock just by making a card using these four colors----Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, & Ocean Tides. I made a quick card (that took me forever because Joshua is sick and I've been up and down the stairs!)

I used Heart Prints to decorate this simple card. I used all the colors above and 4 different small hearts and stamped numerous hearts. I randomly chose nine hearts to put on the front of the card. Then I cut them out (I haven't been able to find that punch---and I'm really missing it tonight!) and put them on the card with Scor-tape. I stamped XOXO from Heart Prints with Palette Noir ink and added some Tiny Twinkles from Taylored Expressions. I added the Summer Sunrise Grosgrain ribbon and a button to finish it off. Except for the constant interruptions (and the cutting part~) this was a fast little card. And now I'm entered to win all that cardstock---as much as I use this cardstock, I'd LOVE to win it!!

Thanks for stopping by--I hope you have a great Saturday. I hope to show you the Valentine's goodies that the kid's are taking to school soon!

This is gorgeous. I really like the simple look (although simple to make it obviously isn't!). It's colorful, fresh and pretty.
