When I unpacked my last Papertrey order I pulled out these three ribbons in one handful and thought they looked so pretty together that I determined to make a card with them as soon as I got home. Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise and the newest colour Simply Chartreuse.
I wanted something bold to reflect the colours and so went to one of my older PTI sets - Beautiful Blooms. They are not colours I would think to put together but it's good and sunny!
I'm very glad that PTI are sending free re-inkers with their new formula inks right now as although the Chartreuse is a lovely colour the pad is very patchy - you can see that the leaves look more like they have been coloured with Copics rather than stamped in a solid colour - still I suppose it gives a bit of variation!
I hope you have all had a good holiday weekend - we have spent most of it in the garden planting out the bedding plants - well at least they are getting a good watering!
