Some Papertrey Flowers

Just a couple of other cards I made this morning using some flower sets from Papertrey Ink.

This first one is for Viva La Verve's Challenge #2 for April, A Passion for Papertrey's Knock on Wood Challenge (I used my woodgrain impression plate on the Ripe Avocado panel, although you can't see it too well in the photo, but it's there honestly!), Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes Challenge and Play Date Café's Challenge #126 to use these colours, which I interpreted as Ripe Avocado/Old Olive (I don't have any Ripe Avocado ink), Marina Mist and Sahara Sand. And what a gorgeous combo this turned out to be!

And here's my card for these challenges:


And my other card is for SC379 for the sketch and for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #118 to be inspired by the photo below. I took the orange roses, yellow gerberas (I think that's what they're called), green leaves and splashes of white for my inspiration! You can't see at all in the photo but I impressed the whole panel with my cane impression plate and it adds such a lovely amount of texture to it.

And here's my card for these challenges.


And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
