I used raspberry fizz, chocolate and ripe advocardo with vanilla ink. The stamp set is Floral Frenzy - I love the fresh daisies in the set.
I couldn't make anything with Papertrey if it wasn't for my lovely friend Chris in Texas - every month she so kindly takes delivery of my PTI order and then posts it over to me - how kind is that? So this is going across the pond as a thank you!

The paper is Polka Dot Parade and the ribbon is Lavender Moon - both from Papertrey, as is the sentiment on the Spellbinders ribbon tag. I filled the flower centres with stickles but it doesn't show up too well in this photo.
I don't think I will be able to get up at 3am for the party but I bet it will be fun!

So for this challenge you have to download a-connect-the-dot drawing and make up a card from the resulting sketch and although it's getting late here I had to have a go.
The stamps are Floral Bouquet and the cardstock is Papertrey Raspberry Fizz, Craft and White along with some Raspberry Fizz paper (I can't wait to see Dawn McVey's new stamps as I am sure I will love them epecially if they go with the great papers!).
The raspberry fizz put me in mind of a nice glass of Rose - so I opened a bottle and poured Paul and I a glass - cheers!

The roses are coloured with Copic Ciao markers in R35 Coral, R46 Strong Red and R59 Cardinal, and the leaves with YG63 Pale Olive and YG63 Pea Green. I like the Ciao markers and can't see/feel any difference between them and the Sketch markers apart from Ciao's are half the price - but it does wind me up that the colour numbers aren't on the caps! The paper is from the SU Bella Rosa paper pack.

When Susan said she had linked me on her blog I was inspired to get out one of my favourite sets - Heart Deco - since I am still in Valentine mode. For this card I punched out a large heart and traced around it to get my outline and then got stamping - but I'm not sure I have kept to the shape too well!
I used my new Vintage Cream and Raspberry Fizz cardstock from Papertrey and used the matching raspberry ink for the stamping in pink along with some versacolor. As the Heart Prints set was still on the table I stamped off the small solid heart in raspberry fizz ink and after punching them out I ran them through my little Zyron sticker maker and sprinkled Art Institute rose glitter over the adhesive.
I enjoyed making a tall card for a change - what do you think?
I used Nicole's cards on her blog here as a starting point and used PTI's Pure Poppy ink for the all red one and a mix of PTI and Verscolor for the second. I used the sentiments from the set and my wonderful husband pencilled in the lines for me - well he did used to be a Draughtsman so that was right up his street!
Whilst on the subject of Papertrey - have you headed over to Nicole's blog to catch the 2nd Anniversary countdown - there are some fantastic goodies to be won!
