Valentine + Day 6 of Papertrey's 5th Anniversary

Over at Papertrey, they are celebrating Day 6 of their 5th Anniversary. Not only are they starting to reveal the the goods for this month, but Nichole has posted a download of five layout sketches for a challenge today. All five were irresistible, and when time allows, I will be making the other four I didn't make today.

I don't get my cards made early enough in the day to have accurate color with no flash. (Just one more thing to get under my belt). I chose Sketch #3 and went with the soft pinks and corals (yes the rosette is much paler in real life) coupled with Papertrey's kraft paper. (I didn't like brown much before Papertrey's kraft color, but now I reach for it all the time.) The background print is from Basic Grey's 'Bittersweet' line and the Tim Holtz rosette die was done with K and Co's 'Smitten Heart Stripe' paper. The ribbon is from Sewfisticated and was only 99 cents for 25 yards. (This ribbon is great for cards because is doesn't ravel easily, but, it would be almost impossible to tie a card sized bow with it due to it's stiffness.)

Papertrey Supplies: white and kraft papers, Banner Builder Collection and Block Alphabet die sets, In the Meadow Silhouettes die (little brown birds), Heart Prints stamps and dies.
Other supplies: Spellbinders Nestibilities 'Heart Circles' dies (white doily behind rosette), brown paper (little birds).

Thanks for visiting today!

  2. Hi There ~ very sweet card - love the little birdies! Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment. The paper is from the Rosewater Collection from Pink Pearl Studio on Etsy - here's the link to the shop

    I do not see the collection now, but probably if you contact her she would set it up. I too love that background paper - it works for so many things.

    Take care, Dru
