Papertrey Ink Color/Sketch Challenge + Valentine Cards

Wow, a second post on one day! But I had to take part in the next Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge! Because my online user name is Vanessa Menhorn (I know, I am sooo creative!) I was allowed to use the wonderful color combo Kraft/Aqua Mist/ Spring Rain/Enchanted Evening/White. Here is my take on the sketch:


And here are some more Papertrey Ink creations! Kate and Aimes started a new challenge on "A Passion for Papertrey" today and it`s called "Be my Valentine". I couldn`t decide on one sample card, so I made two:



You`ll find a list of supplies for both cards here and maybe you`d like to play, too! Aimes and Kate offer generous prizes for the challenges! (And they take them all from their own supplies! Are they sweet or what?) Last weekend I made another PTI project - can`t wait to share it with you, I am soo proud of it!

Are you so excited about all the Papertrey Ink news, too? Can`t wait to read Nichole`s next post - could it get any better??? She knows what a cardmaker is dreaming of!

Have a great Monday and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
