Paper Dolls Challenge 18 and 19

First of all, if I am in your google reader you have probably already seen this because blogger decided that it had to post right away yesterday while I was uploading pictures!  :)  Auugghh!  (OK so I am sure it was operator error!)

I am here today with two Papertrey Paperdolls Challenges!  The first is Anika's.  Her challenge was to find inspiration in a food wrapper!  I found so much inspiration that after I made the card, I also made the brownies!  You can see the open box in the picture....YUM!

The next Challenge is from Michelle!  That was to ink up a set that hadn't been inked before and to use a brand new product!  I have never used Scarlet Jewel before and I JUST got my CHA set in the mail!  When I got to CHA they were out of the free set!  So here is my first card using my new set!

To the Dolls:  I am so sorry I haven't been participating in the last few challenges!  It has been crazy around here!  I plan on catching up! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you all have a great day!

  2. Oh this is beautiful! I love the colors together and the panel size gives the card so much visual interest. I'll say again that I must learn to stitch on cards cause I think it adds a ton to the finished product. Very pretty!

  3. Great card Laurie! I love this set too and you did a great job with it. Funny, Scarlet Jewel isn't a color I go to a lot, but I might have to give it a go!

  10. I can't believe you had to wait so long for your free CHA set!! That being said, I, too, have yet to ink this baby up. I must rectify immediately!!

  11. Laurie, you look at the brownie box and are inspired to make a lovely card that while clearly influenced by the box, is also lovely in its own right. I, on the other hand, would look at the box, become distracted by the picture of the brownies and then go on my merry way, forgetting why I pulled the box out to begin with! :-D
