Sharing Some Old Stuff on Sunday

Just a few more cards I made today all using old retired patterned paper packs from SU... This first one is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #110 for the sketch, SUO Challenge #41 to make a spring themed card (nothing says spring like flowers and butterflies!) and for Friday Mashup's Challenge #51 to use the quilted technique and/or old stash. I used my almost full pack of Bella Rose DSP, which wasn't out over here in the UK and by the time I got my hands on a pack, it had retired! It is still a really beautiful pack of papers though.

Papertrey Ink's March Blog Hop 2012

I can't believe it's time for PTI's March's bloghop already - where has this last month gone?! This month's challenge is to be inspired by this photo. I used the colours yellow and aqua as the basis for my card and combined it with Make It Monday's Challenge #58 to use Copics to make a graduated background (although mine didn't quite come out as well as Nichole's) and A Passion for Papertrey's House and Home Challenge . I only have this set, On My Couch Additions that is related to house and home, so had to pull it out. And here's my card. These stripes remind me of a sunset - no idea why as they are nowhere near the correct colours, but they do. Maybe it's the idea of blue meeting yellow - sky meeting sand! I dunno!
