Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

This month's blog hop is all about color, so our challenge is to create a project using our favorite Papertrey color combination. Now, I didn’t realize that this was a favorite combination of mine until I noticed that I had used it in no less than THREE cards recently. And lucky you, you get to see all three of them.

Let’s start with this one. It uses the set Heart Prints. Very simple and classic. I like it. Unfortunately, it wasn’t what Papercrafts magazine was looking for in the last publication call. I still like it.

Next up, another pub rejection. You’ll notice a theme here with 1/4” strips. Everyone who makes layered cards has 1/4” strips laying around. You know you do. Here’s a really cool way to use them. These are some extra butterflies I had left from making this card.

The third card is one I made a little while ago. I don’t think I posted it yet. Signature Greetings again, and Delightful Dahlia. That’s some black Sparkly Fluff in the center of the flower.
