Papertrey Peeps Challenge #14

After taking a little break from blogland but not from crafting, I'm back with a card for Papertrey Peeps Challenge # 14 hosted by Sharon who posted this great inspiration picture from Country Living.

And here's Sharon's challenge: Make something using RED, YELLOW and CREAM with at least a dollop of WHITE!

I started with a card base of Harvest Gold (such a yummy color!)  and swiped a little ivory paint on the edges. The Pure Poppy panel is impressed with PTI's picnic plaid impression plate while the cream panel is stamped with Background Basics: Botanicals. The flourishes  from Embellishments stampset are stamped on white (my dollop of white). I resisted as long as I could, but finally bought the Beautiful Blooms II die which I stamped with Mini Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger and Background Basics:Petal Power. The Harvest Gold scallop is impressed with the Linen Texture plate and pays homage to the scallop on the table in the inspiration photo while mirroring the shape of the flower blossom. With the finishing touches of a  little Martha Stewart baker's twine and  a Pure Poppy button, I have a bright cheery card with  plenty of pattern and texture.
(All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted)

Thanks Sharon for a fun challenge!


  1. Delightful Cammie! Love the red flourishes.

  2. I need to get me some Harvest Gold, it looks fabulous! Oooh and you make me want some baker's twine too!! LOL!
    Fab card, Cammie! Now if you could just make cards with supplies I already own, my credit card would be truly grateful!

  3. Hi Cammie, so glad to see you back posting! This card is perfect for the challenge--fabulous details! Great effect by stamping on your flower and I love the simple touch of baker's twine.

  4. Very nice. Love the the pattern on the bottom. Hope you had a nice break. By the way hope you have found a solution for your glasses. Got mine today and am already having issues with them. Hopefully they will get better once I get use to them.

  5. Pretty card and wonderful take on this challenge! You have captured the colors and charm of the desk very well.


I truly appreciate your comments. Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
