Combined Challenges!

Hello!  I hope you are having a great start to your weekend!  I have been enjoying the color challenges that The Play Date Cafe has and was excited to see a new challenge there and it was combined with Case Study!  Two great challenges in one!  



When I first saw this color combination, the first thing that came to mind was the Beautiful Blooms DP from PTI that I have NEVER used!  Well, it inspired me but the patterns had another color that wasn't in the challenge so I put it away and created my own little pattern using the Beautiful Blooms stamps!




From the Case Study card, I took the wonderful shape of the card and the layout with the bloom.  I finally used my Bloom Builder die with some Pure Poppy felt.  The leaves were created with the Delightful Dahlia leaf die.


Well, I worked in a couple of other challenges here as well.........the Make it Monday challenge to use a vellum strip and the Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge #29 that Laurie issued to use our PTI dies with felt!

Wow, Amy - there's so much about this that I love! The pp you made is beautiful! Way to use that unused die and hit so many challenges :) I love the linen texture and the avocado paper strip on that CUTE card base!

My v'tine guys card was a one layer PP card, impressed with WG. The mat stack was a peek-a-boo window to a linen impressed, die-cut FL focal piece. I'm so addicted to layers, these cards are rare for me :)
