Color challenges galore!

I don't know what you did in your craft room today, but I was inspired to play in a couple color challenges!

First off, I have my eyes honed in on the PTI blog permanently these days, every day Nichole brings FANTASTIC sneak peeks of new products, stamps, and challenges! I am seriously so excited for the 15th (my credit card, not so much, lol!)! Today, Nichole announced new ventures by Heather Nichols and Dawn McVey! Oh, I'm totally ecstatic about these!
Along with the reveal, Nichole issued a fun color challenge! All of the PTI DT posted their personal favorite color combo and we were to choose one and create a card with it! I am a HUGE fan of Betsy's (well, I'm a huge fan of the whole DT, but time is a luxury, lol!) so I chose her color combo of Sweet Blush, Kraft, Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy! Here's my card:
I used alot of fun PTI stamps and papers on this card! The flourishes are from Fancy Flourishes, the hearts on the Sweet Blush cardstock are from Background Basics: Hearts, the sentiment is from Daily Designs Elements! The Aqua Mist patterened paper is from the Pretty Pastels pack. Fun right? I love this color combo! It's staying in my tool box;)
Next color challenge I participated in was today's CC from SCS! Betty chose Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango, and Sage Shadow! This sounds a bit daunting at first, but the more you move the colors around on your card, the more you'll love them;)
My card base is Rustic Cream (oh how I love this color) and I stamped the floral stems from Life (PTI)in Dusty Durango and Mushroom. The main image is by Crafty Secrets, isn't it gorgeous? I bought a whole bunch of these and the cotton scraps and I can't wait to use them all up:) The sentiment is from Big and Bold Wishes by PTI:)
I'm so happy to be getting my PTI stamps inky lately, they're so beautiful and FUN! I know I promised Verve today, but my inspiration took me in another direction, and like a man, I didn't think anything of it, lmao! Oh that was mean!
Okay, I seriously need to pick up dog toy guts from all over my house! Christy's and my dogs have been having *WAY TOO MUCH FUN* together! I don't think there is a toy left in tact, lol! Whatever keeps them happy, there are alot more of them than me, I don't want them turning against me! HA!
