PTI 8th Anniversary Challenge

Today's PTI challenge was to choose a set of colors and a sketch to create a card.  I'm definitely in the mood for springy colors, using New Leaf, Classic Kraft, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, and Raspberry Fizz.  My personal challenge was to use some stamps I haven't used in a while.  

Mighty Oak came up and one of the quotes on this stamp set - about going out on a limb - inspired this card.  The image is split in two:  one side with the traditional green leaves and the other side, further out on the limb, in vivacious colors.  I used generation stamping to create more depth and to keep the colors balanced.  Otherwise the Raspberry Fizz would have taken over.  Love this sentiment and the way the card picks up that theme of "going out on a limb".

  1. Ooh, I just love this card! I love the transition of from the green leaves to the brightly colored ones. So awesome!

  2. I love everything about this card! So, so pretty with the leaves changing from green to the bright colors.
