A Tulip Wish

Hey everybody! Hope your week went well and your weekend is starting off on the right foot. I have been off the last two days so that has been nice. The card I have to share today follows three challenges. First, the layout is based on Splitcoast Stampers' Sketch Challenge #231. I'm glad I came across it as it made me create something a little different than I normally would. I like that about all of the different challenges. They really motivate me too; especially when there is a deadline. For the colors, I used Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #8 which also coincided with Charisma Cardz challenge #22 to use pink and brown this week.Once again, all products are by Papertrey Ink. I used the small flower from the 2008 Anniversary set Everyday Classics to create a background on the Raspberry Fizz panels which I sponged with Dark Chocolate ink. The Wish image is from one of my favorite sets, Wishing You. I added some fine glitter to the tulip. Sneak peeks for PTI's upcoming release started today. Check out Nichole's blog for more details. I shall be back soon with a three card set using Wishing You. Have a fab weekend! :)

Recipe:
Stamps: Everyday Classics, Wishing You
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate
Cardstock: Kraft, Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate
Accessories: Nestabilities, Martha Stewart fine glitter, Quickie glue pen
