2 for 1 Papertrey Style

Have you been following the countdown to one of the biggest, most exciting releases ever at Papertrey? If you have not, you should be! Today's post is two of the last challenges they have had. I didn't have time to do the color combo for the contest but decided to do the current challenge using the last challenge colors.

The challenge was to do the connect the dots puzzler which revealed a card sketch. So using the colors in the previous challenge I decided to mix it up a little by making the sketch into a 6x6 scrapbook page for my yearly book. I started by stamping polka dot basics in versamark onto Ocean tides card stock. Then added the center note paper from Making Memories, dressed with some pure poppy grosgrain ribbon. Then I added some huge square jeweled stickers from MM on the right hand side. Next I cut away some of the packaging that the jeweled stickers came on to layer my title. A little bit of going green, but it matched so perfectly I HAD to do it. I used my new favorite Fresh Alphabet for my title and out the year in my own print (I hate my handwriting but Last but not least, I added a handmade crocheted flower using a variegated thread that matches the summer sunrise perfectly. Are you sick of my crocheted flowers yet? Don't worry that post on getting some is coming soon, I promise!

I love dimension!! Thanks for stopping by to take a peek and good luck to all participants that enter...can you image 95 rolls of ribbon for free?!? I would die! See you again tomorrow!
