Today is the start of the celebrations over at Papertrey Ink for their 5th anniversary.
The design team shared lots about themselves today and it was great to read their stories. Their work constantly inspires me and their blogs are definitely on my go to places especially when I need a creative nudge in the right direction. So a massive thank you from me to each of the design team and everybody behind the scenes at PTI. Papertrey will always hold a special place in my heart as is led me to one of my best friends (J xx). So today Nichole set the challenge to choose one of the projects highlighted by the girls and to draw from it. For me it had to be Jessica Witty's beautiful card, with so much white space. I've looked at this card several times but never been brave enough to go there. But today I have embraced all that white space!
I also tried it with cutting the quatrefoil die rather than embossing it
Then inspired by the challenge at:
Dutch Dare Card Challenges - photo inspiration
I changed the colours slightly
Supplies used (all PTI)
Card - stampers select white, orange zest, raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst, aqua mist, spring moss

I also decided to do some colouring and what better than Strawberry Kisses Flower Power, how cute is that kitty!
I was inspired by challenges at:

So I'd better get to bed as I have to go to Derby today, let's hope most of the snow has disappeared. As far as I'm concerned I only like snow when it's up a mountain and I have my skis on!!
Have a great week.
