Papertrey Princess Challenges #7&8

Hello ladies...this post has been a while in the making. I've had the cards done for some time, but getting some time to post them on my blog has been near impossible. Better late then never (coming from someone who sent out her birth announcements when the baby was 6 months old!).




The first challenge was from Bethie...with spring in the air we were to use a new technique, new idea, new color combo. I came up with a card using 3 different sets: "Through the Trees", "Fruitful" and "Signature Greetings"...on the front is a peach tree, hence the sentiment inside.














Next was Diane's challenge to make a card using a B&W color scheme with one additional color to pop. I love the way Raspberry Fizz looks with B&W. I also got to use my BB dies, which I absolutely LOVE. I can't wait to play with them some more!














Once again ladies, thanks for the great challenges! This has been fun!

  2. I know what you mean about posting. The card part is easy (well sometimes), but getting them on here is something else. Your cards are both fantastic. I love the clever buttons in the tree and you are right. The rf with black is a classic combo.

  3. Whoa, that tree card is very striking! Love the little buttons. That takes the tree to a whole new level for me. The ribbon, the sentiment, the mixing of the sets...all awesome! I love the classic colors in the second. That pop of raspberry fizz looks great!
