MTSC71, Moxie Fab World and C4C34,CC266 Casing Barb

Aloha friends!!! I have two cards for you !!!

When I saw the Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday Challenge I knew I had to play!!! Isn't this a fabulous inspiration photo??? I'm so ready to hang out at the pool!!!


Here is my take on it.....



I received my PTI package and could help myself to ink up the awesome Delightful Dahlia Set. I loved the April PTI Blog Hop idea - creating something with tissue paper so much I had to do make another flower card :) !!! The layout from this weeks MTSC71 Sketch was the perfect with it!!!

**********************************************

My second card is for this weeks C4C34 - casing on of the DT Members. I chose to case this beautiful CAS card my sweet and super talented friend Barbara Anders made.


I love that Barb and I share the same passion about PTI :) and when I saw her card I had to play with the same Guide Lines Two Set. I changed the layout a bit and added a flower instead of the ribbon. The colors are from the CC266 - using Blush Blossom, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red. The dessert option was to add Creamy Caramel or Close to Cocoa....I chose the yummy Creamy Caramel!!!  At last I decorated the card with some Small Gold Pearls and the flower on the side.

Have a wonderful evening!!!

I so love that tissue flower ... and you have done a fantazmagorical job on the challenge. Love the way you have balanced the colours with just a touch of blue! I so need to try one of those scallop circle punch flowers. Have done a crinkle one with 3 layers ... but haven't tried this many layers! Just lovely! Oh ... and congrats on your new appointment to Lauren's team! I can't wait to see what you have in store for us. Perhaps it is just as well you aren't moving! Like you say ... you can concentrate on your stamping now uninterrupted! Big hugs Silke! from Andrea xxx
