Here is one of the entries I made for July's PTI bloghop. I don't normally participate in these blog hops, but I really have been trying to challenge myself in using color palettes and card sketches lately. PTI posted some pretty yummy summery color palettes and I am trying to work my way through them for the blog hop. I needed to make some birthday cards, so here are two using one of the color palettes: raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst, limeade ice and new leaf. I used SU! colors of pink passion, regal rose, and wild wasabi for raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst, and new leaf. I used my new MFT wash tape dies and stamps and PTI wonderful words birthday for the striped card. The other card is a CASE of Betsy Veldman's card she did using PTI Friendship jar. Loved this card so I used the overall design and changed the colors. Makes me want a strawberry or raspberry limeade drink.
