Compose a Card Challenge #5

I was finally able to play with Becky Oehlers Compose a Card Challenge. It is kind of fun as she gives the sizes, color and all and you have to create the card :)

I did not have the Red Polka Dot Paper that she was using in her card. So, I made some of my own. I stamped the polka dots from Polka Dot Basics in Fresh Snow Ink on Pure Poppy CS and used a smaller polka dot background from the same set and stamped it in Pure Poppy on white. I loved how this turned out and plan do more of these. I just had to leave the Fresh Snow ink to dry for a while :)

I punched out a flower from the White Polka dot Patterned paper that I had created for this card.

Here is my card,

Here is Becky's Compose a card challenge,

Stamp - PTI Polka Dot Basics, PTI Birthday Basics
Paper - PTI Aqua Mist, PTI Pure Poppy and PTI White
Ink - PTI Pure Poppy, PTI Fresh Snow
Other - SU Word Window Punch, 5 Petal Flower Punch

Saturday Scrapbook Challenge #9 using Justrite Stamps

I found these real nice pictures from my Birthday of Last year. I was in India for my brother's wedding and we had a family get together at a restaurant there. It was really amazing. Since that day is also our wedding anniversary, it is always extra special :)

I used the Inspired Crafters Sketch #9 for this LO and this LO was also done for the Justrite Stampers Scrappy Pages Challenge - to use Justrite stamps on your LO. I used the Just a Note Borders & Centers 1 5/8" from Justrite stamps for my LO and created a border out of it :) I am quite happy how this LO turned out.

Here is the Sketch,

Stamp - Love in Return from {ippity}, Just a Note Borders & Centers 1 5/8" from Justrite stamps
Paper - K&Company, PTI Smokey Shadow, Pure Poppy, Enchanted Evening and White CS
Ink - PTI Pure Poppy, Ranger Distress Ink - Faded Jeans and Walnut Stain
