PTI World Card Making Day Challenge 1 & 2

Nichole Heady from PTI is running a contest on her blog for World Card Making Day (yesterday).  You still have time if you want to enter!  You could win the entire October Release!  Wouldn't that be sweet?!  The first challenge was to make a card inspired by Japan, japenese art, etc.  I pulled out my Out On a Limb set because it reminds me of Japanese cherry blossoms.

Card Deets: All products PTI unless noted.  CS: Hibiscus burst, vintage cream, dark chocolate.  Ribbon:  Hibiscus satin.  Ink: Hibiscus, dark chocolate, spring moss.  Ranger stickles and liquid pearls.

Challenge 2 Mexico



The little spots and dots background here reminds me of Mexican tiles. The bright and bold colors of the gems say Mexico to me as well. Imagine my surprise when I saw the website later and saw the next challenge was India... LOL I guess I could have used this for that one as well! But it was slated to be Mexico, so thats where its staying. All materials PTI except for the galaxy gold ink and rhinestones (K&co.)
