Papertrey Paper Dolls: Challenge #8

School's Out for Summer!!  I am thrilled to have a few months to myself!  So far my plans include a 2 week grad class, crafting, tending to my plants, figuring out how to teach first grade, going to CHA Chicago, and most importantly RELAXING!

Today I made a couple cards.  One of them is for the 8th Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge (find more info here).  I also made one for the 7th challenge, but I'm not sure I like it yet.  Anyway,  Challenge #8 was to use this color combo...
And here is my card...

I just got Life in my last order and I really wanted to use it.  I also used the Large Scallop die.  Everything is PTI except the green ink, which is Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

Thanks for looking, I should have more to share tomorrow.  Now I'm off to eat some yummy chicken that my husband made on the grill!  Enjoy your evening.

Hooray for Summer Vacation! When I taught I was convinced that the teachers were more excited than the kids. Now that I'm a parent, I think I was more excited about not having to get my girls up and ready early! Yay for a break! OH yes...your card is lovely as well! It is a tough color combo, but you did a great job with it!
