Challenge: Congrats (Team GB!)


Welcome to a shiny new challenge here on A Passion for Papertrey!

Us gals are in a very celebratory mood after a very successful Olympics - we don't want it to end! We certainly feel very proud of Team GBs achievements so with this in mind, we're asking you to create projects with a congrats theme this fortnight.

Now don't worry, you don't have to dedicate your card to Team GB if you aren't a fan of the Olympics - just stick with the theme and use at least one PTI product to join in the fun :)

For my card I used a set that I haven't inked up for ages. Happy Trails is such a sweet set, I should give it more inky love every now and again:

Let your dreams take flight

Card Deets
{let your dreams take flight}
Stamps: Happy Trails (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Tuxedo Black, London Fog (Memento)
Cardstock: Enchanted Evening, White (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Lemon Tart Bitty Box Basics (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Lemon Tart Grosgrain Ribbon, Linen and Canvas Impression Plate (Papertrey Ink)/Cuttlebug (Provocraft)/Copic Marker

I feel this card has a congrats theme even though the sentiment doesn't literally say 'Congrats'. I'm thinking of using this for an exam congrats or a card to celebrate the start of college/university. Oh those were the days *sigh*  LOL!

Over to Caryn:

Well this challenge made me want to reach for my Scattered Showers set - one of my all-time favourites.  This could be for a bridal shower or baby shower perhaps - or just a general congrats card!  The layout is actually from this weeks Retro Sketches challenge which you can see here.  The little fabric heart on the umbrella is actually cut from Aqua Mist grosgrain ribbon with the hearts border die - it cut surprisingly well!

Recipe: {Congratulations}
STAMPS: Scattered Showers.
INK: Aqua Mist, Ripe Avacado, Smokey Shadow.
DIES: Scattered Showers, Heart Border, Mat Stack 4, Canvas Impression Plate.
CARDSTOCK: Vintage Cream, Rustic Cream, Ripe Avacado, Green Tea Leaves pp.
OTHER: Ripe Avacado button, felt, Aqua Mist grosgrain ribbon.

Kate will be joining as soon as she has access to her crafty supplies! :)
