Poppy Seed Challenge #2


Lisa Johnson has another challenge for us.  When I saw 'polka dots' I knew I had to participate in this one!  I just received my March Release package from Papertrey Ink and I am in love with the new Hawaiian Shores color. (Who isn't?? It's gorgeous!) So here is what I came up with.


I love the bright orange and blue paired with the light green.  When I stamped the vase I was a little annoyed at the light space in the middle so I restamped it, but I ended up liking the one with the light space - almost looks like the sunlight is shining on it.  

I worked on a bunch of other cards today too, but I'm submitting them to Paper Crafts Stamping Royalty Card Contest. I've never submitted anything before, but decided 'why not?'

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday!  Enjoy the weekend!

I love this card!! The colors are terrific!! I also like the white on the vase, it gives it character and a nice touch.
I sure hope my order comes in soon, so I can play with the new Hawaiian Shores and the other goodies.

Very pretty card Anika! You're right, the orange looks great with HS. Nice take on the challenge. Hopefully I will get some time tomorrow to do Lisas challenge too!

Lovely card, Anika! I can't wait until my Hawaiian Shores items arrive!

Side note: can I just say that whenever I see your avatar pic I always mentally say how gorgeous you are? If you weren't such a great cardmaker, I'd say you should be a model! ;)

Great color combo....fun use of the Asian set (and don't worry about the vase...it makes it look "real"...if that makes sense).

Ingrid Danvers said...

What a beautiful card. HS looks great with orange. I can't wait for HS to arrive on my doorstep, but I think it will take another 2 weeks before it gets here.

Good luck on submitting!

Dana said...

Fantastic card Ankia...I too like the "highlight" area on the vase. Looks intentional! Good color combo too!

Lee Anne said...

Well, this is just a wonderful color combo! Your card is beautiful.
