You’re So Sweet 16

youresosweet16 

Hello!  I’ve been creating today and had time during my morning coffee :)  Gotta love the new provincial Family Day holiday :)  Papertrey Ink is having a colour challenge today and I was so happy I had time to whip up a fun card using the first colour palette…

I pulled out my paper pads and chose papers that matched the inspiration photo.  Then I die cut them into strips and layered them altogether.  Then I took a break and while I was brushing my teeth, I came up with the idea to pair this “you’re so sweet” with the # 16.    A little play on words AND another way to use your “you’re so sweet” stamps!  Cool!  Thanks for stopping by!  Are you following the PTI release?  I think I have 2 shopping carts full already! LOL

Oh this is awesome! What a fabulous sweet 16 card...very CAS too! :) I have not followed along with the PTI release at all and I'm thinking that might be a good thing for my budget!

Well done with the sentiment. Loving that polka dotted 16 too :) Sounds like there will be a lot of happy mail coming your way shortly ;)

I'm pretty sure I have 3 shopping carts full (it's pretty bad when you have to start creating different wishlists, based on themes :)....I love your card, and how you recreated that pretty pallette!

Beautiful sweet 16 card, Maureen! Love your take on those pretty colors! :)

Oh how fun to combine that sentiment with the 16! This would work well with the PTI ice cream cone set too ... there's a similar sentiment in there. Thanks for the great idea!! Love all the layering in the middle of your card too. It's contained enough to not be busy, but super-interesting.
