Paper Dolls Challenge #9

Holy crafting, Batman!!  This is my second post today.  Scroll down to my first post for the day for a couple cards I made with Color Couture.

I'm trying to catch up on some of the Paper Dolls Challenges.  This one was issued by Katie:  What's Old is New!  Meaning use one of the first Papertrey Ink sets you ever purchased.  Well, my first order included 3 sets - Butterfly Kisses and Fancy Flourishes, that I use often and Background Basics: Spots and Dots, that I love, but just don't reach for very often.  It was fun to pull it out again, hopefully it will see a little more ink in the coming weeks too!  Anyway, I managed to use all 3 sets on my card for this challenge.  I also chose to use Berry Sorbet since that was the first ink color I purchased from Papertrey.

Although it's still not perfect, I have gotten much better at lining up the outline and inside of this background image.  It's probably the hardest one for me to line up.

Well, I think I'm caught up with the Paper Dolls Challenges that are still open.  There are a few others that I never had a chance to do that I still want to try though!  Please feel free to play along with the challenges on the Paper Dolls blog - they are issued every Thursday and are open for 3 weeks - we would love to see your work!

Have a great day!

I have looked at your blog a number of times.....love your cards! I noticed from one of the pictures that you have a twins shirt on. Where in MN are you from? I am from Mankato :) My email is lorimoc@hickorytech.net I get a group of girls together every couple months at a hotel meeting room in Mankato to papercraft/scrapbook. Let me know if interested! I don't have a blog set up, kinda new to that sort of thing :) Thanks- Lori

I'm so impressed that you used all three of your first order sets! Great job with all of them, but I am jealous of how well you line up Spots & Dots! It doesn't get as much love from me as it should but here I see it *is* possible to line it up, LOL!

Love that you used all 3 of the first sets you bought on one card! This is great! I don't have Dots&Spots because it looked so hard to line up. I might think about it now that I've seen your cute card!
