Congrats, you did it!

Friday, April 23, 2010

Hello there friends! I am so impressed with my photography this morning and it was pure LUCK! I made this card for the first ever Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge. Such a great sketch to start off a new challenge blog. I hope you guys check it out. Who doesn't love some Papertrey goodness?


Anyway, I received my Papertrey Ink order yesterday and got to use a couple goodies on my card. The sentiment is from Signature Greetings and is the awesome handwriting of Dawn McVey. I also bought the new rickrack die. It is awesome. I can't wait to order more of their dies. They are high quality!!! Oh, money tree. Where are you???

About the photo. You probably wouldn't ever guess it was pouring down rain here. I put the card on top of our grill, which is under a little canopy on our deck. I barely edited it. I love how green the grass and trees are and how well it coordinates with the pink on my card.
The butterfly is heat embossed with clear embossing powder. All the rhinestones are pink, they sorta look clear.

I hope this rain clears up! Halle and Colin have their first baseball and tee-ball games tonight. I was soooo looking forward to it. I hope you all have a great weekend! I'll be here tomorrow with a new challenge from Our Creative Corner.

Thanks for playing along with our sketch. This is a great card. I love the Raspberry Fizz on the white. It just pops. Embossing is a great touch. Beautiful card!

Love the way you used the rick rack. I have that die, but haven't used it nearly enough. And you're right that the PTI dies are fabulous! Love the way they cut! Back to your card -- the clear embossing looks great on the butterfly. Really nice touch. And, by the way, when you find the money tree, will you let me know? I'd sure like to have one, too!
