Papertrey Ink 7th Anniversary Sketch Challenge Cards

I'm taking a break from Valentine themed projects today to share a couple of cards I made yesterday from some of my Papertrey Ink stash in honor of their 7th Anniversary festivities.  The challenge is to create a card with a sketch and one of their color recipes found HERE.

While I had my inks out I decided to go ahead and make two cards with slight variations using the same color recipe and sketch.  I don't own Papertrey Ink paper or ink colors so I had to do my best to substitute. :)

For my first card I used the Mat Stack 5 die and then stamped a gingham background over the top.  For the subtitle portion of my card, the sentiment ran a little long for the space I had available so I snipped it between words to create three individual lines of text and to better fit the space I had to work with.

This was my first time playing with my Sweet Life multi-layered rose stamps and I am in love.  Such pretty results with so little effort!  To finish off my roses I added a little stickles glitter glue to their petals.

For my second card I wanted to try a bit different look with the woodgrain print and rhinestone details, moving my rose grouping to the right to better fit my change in sentiment.

To create my cards today I used the following Papertrey Ink items:

Thanks so much for stopping by.  :)
