Papertrey Ink Anniversary ~ Thoughts of You!

If you haven't joined in on the fun and festivities over at Papertrey Ink, it's not too late! Wow oh wow are they giving away some amazing prize packages and punching things up a notch with lots of changes and additions to the February release.

Today's challenge is all about color. The DT has put together some of their favorite color combos. We're asked to choose one and make a card ~ easy peasy, they did the hard part for us! This is my pick from Lisa Johnson.
 
Funny thing...its says Lisa's favorites and it happens to be mine too!! A girl can never go wrong with red and kraft combined...am I right!


I decided to CASE Lisa's card as well as her colors. I've use the Mat stack 4 die and stamp paired with the wreath and sentiment from tag-its #3. My stamped die cut butterflies are from the Love Lives Here set. The floral and polka dot paper are Cosmo Cricket: odds and ends and the stripe is My Mind's Eye: rosy. Like I said easy peasy!

***Before I go I want to give a BIG WARM WELCOME to my new followers! I've had several flutter in over the last couple of days; so hugs to you all! I'm grateful and humbled that you've seen something here at My Paper Tales that inspired or intrigued you and you have decided to join me. And to my followers that have been with me for awhile; thanks for your continued support and encouragement!  HUGS friends ~Lisa

What a beautiful card! I love the small details that you've put in. I wanted to participate in this challenge, but I couldn't believe it when I realized I didn't own any colored PTI cardstock or ink! For shame! I'll have to remedy that quickly!

SO pretty, Lisa! Amazing job with the patterned paper! Why did I think you had many more followers than you do?! Probably because you're so amazing--if I would've looked, I would've given you the Leibster award--if anyone deserves it, it's DEFINITELY you! :) Hugs!!!
