Papertrey Ink July 2013 blog hop

I was very excited to see a color challenge for the blog hop this month.   There are 6 yummy color schemes to choose from inspired by the fruits of Summer.  Find out more details on Nichole's blog here.

I loved Mailes Belles's Sweet Pea card.  (Thanks for the inspiration Mailes!) You can find it here.  I loved the pops of colors she did using Copics and figured this would be perfect to replicate for the challenge. 
First up is an anniversary card using this color scheme:
I needed an anniversary card and this color scheme was perfect for that!  Sorry for the poor a hurry to post before the challenge is over!

I used Papertrey Ink's Year of Flowers:  Sweet Pea and the bell is from my Wedding Charms file.  The sentiment if from PTI's signature series: Dress Form.  I've been dying to use this glitzy ribbon given to me by a friend of mine.  It really adds lots of sparkle in person.  If you would like to purchase my file please click on the preview below:

I did one other using the color pallette below:

Same style as the other but the sentiment came from PTI's Classic's anniversary set.  I added some twine and a tiny butterfly charm to complete the card.

I love this simple way to add color to stamps and can't wait to try this with others. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Please come back again!

So much fun to see how different the same stamp can be with different colors. Thank you. And with ribbon and twine too! Just lovely!

You really thought outside the box on this one. I love your interpretations of how to use the colors, and your composition. Isn't that Sweet Pea set great. I was just using it yesterday - so simple, and yet so versatile. Thanks for sharing.
