Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge/Raspberry Suite Color Challenge


I got a tiny bit creative last night, and by tiny, I really mean it, I squeaked out 2 cards. I'm hoping that those 2 card will jump start my creative energy. I come down to the basement wanting to stamp and just sit and stare at everything, waiting for someone to tell me where to start.

Mercy has just started up her sketch challenges again and I'm a big fan of sketch challenges so this one was right up my alley. Since I just got my new Papertrey Ink order last week this set is on my desk and not sure if it will ever make it off my desk. It's too darn cute! I combined Mercy's sketch challenge with Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge (Moss, White, Berry and Red). I used my new Papertrey Ink cardstock for this card as well. I know you can't tell too well but the cardstock behind the topiary is the berry sorbet as well as the little slip knots in the buttons.

Do you *love* the bow? I got the Bow-Easy from Sharon Johnson this past week and have been playing with it and love how cute the bows turn out! I also got some wonderful new ribbons that I can't wait to try out ;-)

Hopefully you won't get too sick of this set as I'm having a hard time putting it down right now and I just got new buttons & cardstock to play with!

Stamp Set: Everyday Button Bits by Papertrey Ink
Cardstock: Spring Moss, PTI White, Berry Sorbet, Red Pure Poppy, MMI Pretty Please "Full of Flowers" dsp

You enabler!!! :0) I'm trying to not spend so much money on this craft each month and convinced myself that I wouldn't order from PTI. After seeing your card and reading your enthusiasm my hand is reaching for my credit card!!!Great card. Great layout.
