PTI paint by number sketch challenge and CPS #153

I have been having so much fun following Papertrey Ink's 3rd birthday celebration and announcements over at Nicole's blog. There are so many new products coming out this year!! Here are a couple of cards that I managed to make for the challenges associated with the celebration.

I made this card for the Paint by number sketch challenge. The sketch and dimension of the pieces in the sketch are provided. According to the first letter of your online username, there is also a color combination for you to follow.

My colors are kraft, ocean tides, spring moss, lemon tart and vintage cream. I am not so sure about my lemon tart here, but I had fun making this card and that's what mattered! =) The pattered papers are from PTI's Pretty Pastels. I tamped the swirly leaf image from the Beyond Basic Border set on the kraft piece with VersaMark Dazzle before I stamped the sentiment.

Papertry Ink is also the sponsor of this week's challenge over at Card Positioning Systems.

The patterned paper is from In Bloom and the stamps are from Autumn Abundance stamp set.

That's all I have for today. Hope you have a beautiful day! =)


Thanks for stopping by!
