A couple of PTI cards

Just a couple of Papertrey Ink cards I made this morning.

This first one is for Make It Monday's Challenge #71 to use bordered sentiments and for Papertrey Princess Ren-Yi's Challenge to only use paper and ink - no patterned papers, no embellishments or anything. that was a major struggle for me as I love my patterned papers and my ribbon! But I did it eventually. No idea what was up with this strawberry stamp but it took 4 attempts to get it it stamp enough to colour in and this one is still a bit dodgy, but will do for now!

My other card is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #123 for the sketch, Cupcake Crafts Challenge #197 to use eyelets (couldn't believe I had some Brilliant Blue eyelets in my retired stash box!) and for Play Date CafĂ©'s Challenge #137 to use black, white and a splash of blue. I went with a nice, bright blue, Brilliant Blue, a retired SU colour, which looks fab paired here with black and white!


And here's my card with the note in the pocket.


And here it is out of the pocket.

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

  2. Vannessa - this is just gorgeous. That Brilliant Blue (one that I don't think I've ever used) is so striking teamed with black and white. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!
