Papertrey Ink Anniversary Recipe Card Challenge

Hello,

I'm bringing you a couple of cards today which I made using the sketch and colour recipe cards in the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge.

First up is this masculine Valentine, for the guy who doesn't like gushy and mushy and pink. ;-)
I used PTI Teach and Inspire (chevrons) and Sending My Love stamps. I also used Fillable Frames #10 die. You would not believe the effort in adding that little bit of stitching. The recipe called for stitching, so I persevered, lol!

I turned the sketch upside down.
And I used this colour recipe. Isn't it so pretty?! :-)

My second card is much more girly!
I used PTI Ruby Rose and Stylish Sentiments: Birthday stamps.

I didn't move very far from the sketch recipe, it was just lovely! I didn't want to cover up the pretty flowers, so I used vellum for the sentiment strip, with black embossed sentiment.
The colour recipe was irresistible prettiness.
All seven of the sketch recipes and seven colour recipes are beautiful. I hope I can find some time to get back to making more cards with them.

Today we had our niece come to visit. It was so nice to spend some time with her. My girls love their big cousin. I love that now she is all grown up that she can just jump in the car and drive down to see us sometimes. :-)

Thank-you for dropping by to look at my cards!
