RS #6, Jeweled Color Trends Challenge & Paper Dolls Challenge #46: Spring Bling

The card I am posting today is for three challenges. This is definitely a first for me, usually I focus on one or two at a time, but not three.  I was over the top inspired by this weeks Embellish Magazine's Colour Trends palette. Of course I needed to participate in this weeks Retro Sketch, which features a fabulous sketch by Lynn and I wanted to participate also in the most recent Papertrey Paper Dolls Spring Bling Challenge.  Renee and Suzanne are the hosts this time and have provided awesome inspiration. I have so many anniversaries coming up this spring that I need cards for, three of them are my siblings.  LOL









All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Blueberry Sky, Aqua Mist Soft Grey
Stamps: Heart Prints
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Dies: Bloom Builders 3, Doily Details
other: foam dots, dot embossing folder (Cuttlebug), brad, jewels (Doodlebug)

What a beautiful card. I love those colors together, and your take on the sketch is wonderful. And, your bling is perfect as well. I've got a bit of time to craft today, and was planning on using that sketch, too. So glad you could play along with the Dolls!!

Fantastic! You have really distilled all three challenges into their essential elements and incorporated them all! I especially like the way you did the flower in the middle of the doily--I have both of those dies and just might CASE you!

Really pretty card, Tracey. ;-) Love the way you've used the colors, and that flower over the doily is just fabulous! The 'bling' is great, and I love the white polka-dot layer. Nice job on catching all those challenges in one beautiful card! ;-)

Kelly Griglione said...

Tracey, your card is so luxurious! So many layers in your flower, I love it!! You will laugh, but the card I just made is almost identical to yours ... I promise I didn't see yours first though : ) I'll post it in the morning when I have light to photograph it. And big congrats on your Retro Sketch guest designer gig!
