Create Along with Us

I was thrilled when I heard the news that Betsy Veldman had introduced a new PTI challenge!  The Create Along with Us challenge allows crafters to select a card design from PTI's release week and recreate it with their own personal twist.  I knew this was going to be super fun; the hardest part was selecting an inspiration card.  I decided to make two!

My first card is my take on this lovely creation by Dawn McVey.  I just love the pretty shades of melon and pink.


I used the same colors here, but created a dry embossed dot background.  Then, I added a kraft bookmark and stamps and die cut leaves from Friendly Flowers.  

My second card borrows a little inspiration from Amy Sheffer.  I really like the brightly colored apples and the black plaid she used.

I went with a similar apple theme, but changed it a bit.  I used my gingham background stamps and notebook die to create this Back to School card.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  I hope the PTI design team has provided you as much inspiration as they've given me.  Now, time to begin working on the Blog Hop Challenge!
