Papertrey Day 2 Challenge

One of the first things I did this morning after waking up was go to the computer and see what was new on Nichole's blog regarding Papertrey Ink's Anniversary. A challenge was issued and below is my take. I went ahead and made 2 cards using the same layout and colors. I wasn't very original since I used the same color scheme as yesterday's card. I decided to use the digital image from Melissa. I LOVE her stamps and own nearly every set she has designed. Good luck to all the players!
I went with 3 candles (firecrackers) from the Let Freedom Ring set to represent 3 wonderful years for PTI. I was also trying for the messy sewing look. It is a mess alright but it looks intentionally messy. I can't seem to achieve the look I want. Practice makes perfect (or messy) I suppose.
Stamps: Let Freedom Ring (PTI) & Melissa Bickford's digital stamp
Paper- white and ripe avocado, bitty dots PP (PTI)
Ink- pure poppy, summer sunrise, ripe avocado
Misc- sewing machine, nestabilities, copics (Y35, R27, G99)


  1. I think the sewing turned out great! I love seeing what everyone's been doing with the images. I printed some out, just hope to have enough time tonight to whip up a few cards :)

  2. Absolutely adorable! Great for any birthday!!!

  3. Wow, you are fast!! You did a great job with the image and I love the three firecrackers images you used on the bottom too.

  4. I love this card. It is simple and the colors are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Great job with both cards. Wonderful take on the PTI challenge.

    It's a good life!

  7. I would like to know if the paper is stamped or if not, the name of the company that distributes it. Thanks you.
