Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #1

**This is my second post for the day.  Please scroll down to see a post using a couple of PTI's newest stamp sets!**

The new PTI blog group that I joined, Papertrey Paper Dolls, is having our first challenge this week!  It is a sketch by my friend Laurie and it is a fun one!  If you would like to play along, be sure to link your card to the blog post!  We'd love to see what you create!

Here's the sketch (that I turned on it's side):


Here's what I did with the sketch:


This is from the new PTI Anniversary Set called "Round & Round".  It's so cute...and it was free so that makes it even better!!  Isn't that woodgrain background so cool! I just love it!  And, that "Dotty Biscotti" paper?  Oh yum!!



I cut the bird with my cricut on patterned paper.  I know, kind of lazy since it is a tiny bird, but I HATE to cut things out! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Round & Round
Paper:  Kraft, Rustic White, Raspberry Fizz, Dotty Biscotti
Ink: Palette Landscape & Noir
Other:  PTI Buttons, Tan Scrapper's Floss, Pop Dots, PTI Woodgrain Impressions Plate, circle punch, cricut

  1. Great take on the sketch....especially like how you turned it on the other side!! I thought about using the mat stack die in place of a oval too! Great mind think alike! hehe

  2. Nice card, Jen! I was going to use the same image, but didn't want to cut out the bird either! Using the Cricut was a smart thing to do. Like how you turned the sketch around.
