Paper Smooches Sparks and PTI Anniversary

This week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge is all about Polka Dots.  What could be more fun than that?  I found a few little polka dot stamps in my Alphadots set, and used them to create a bit of random polka-dotted rainbow.

Next up is another card for the Papertrey 6th Anniversary celebration.  Yes, I am still stuck on Day One, and I have made a card inspired by (OK, copied from) this card from Erin.


If you look closely, you can see a few things that I changed--but I really fell in love with this card, and found it hard to stray too far from the original.  In the works, but not fully baked yet, is a version in a completely different color scheme.  I was so happy to see this card, because Cupcake Collection was one of my earlier PTI purchases, and it has not seen much love lately.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Paper Smooches Alphadots, Pretty Phrases
Paper:  PTI White, Harvest Gold
Ink:  PTI Scarlet Jewel, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Ocean Tides, SU Real Red

Stamps:  Cupcake Collection, Simple Sentiments
Paper:  White, Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, Beautiful Beads
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Other:  Cupcake Collection and Loop de loop dies, Numbers Impression Plate

Thanks for Visiting
