Papertrey Peeps Challenges #2, 3, & 4

Wow, I can't believe it's been 3 months since I last updated! That's definitely *way* too long, and hopefully it won't happen again. :) Since I have a lot to post, this is gonna be the first of two posts-- one with devoted just to Papertrey Peeps challenges, and the second for my other projects. Here's challenges 2-4... (and #4 is my favorite!)

Papertrey Peeps Challenge #2

The challenge was to choose a package (from">here)and use those colors in a card. For this I used Lemon Tart (which didn't show up very well in the pics, sorry), Dark Chocolate, and Summer Sunrise. I love">Heather Nichols' Fillable Frames, and found myself referring back to this card design for a few other cards that I had to make.

Papertrey Peeps Challenge #3

The challenge (">here)was to use Orange Zest. Now, I'll admit that this card doesn't make my top 10 on cards. I think it might've turned out better if I simply stamped the smaller flowers, instead of die-cutting them.

Papertrey Peeps Challenge #4

Challenge #4 was to CASE one of Nichole's cards. I choose this one..

And here is the card I made...

I used RV14 to make the border-- I wasn't concerned about keeping it straight or even and I really liked how it turned out. I love the color combo too- Hibiscus Burst, Sweet Blush, and Smokey Shadow. This easily became one of my favorite cards.. and the first I made in a 5x5 size too.

Thanks for looking!

Nicole :)
