FIESTA! PTI Color Challenge

Okay, okay, I know my usual battle cry is "SIESTA!" not "FIESTA!", but these colors really said "party" to me, so bring on the margaritas and the mariachis!

The colors we are to use are Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Ripe Avocado, and Ocean Tides, or reasonable facsimilies. With these colors, I had to use It's a Celebration. To start I stamped the string for the pennants in Palette Noir. For the BG I used the confetti and inked up one side of it in one color, the other side in another color. Cool effect I think, just be sure to always ink up your yellow first, so you don't wreck your yellow pad. I stamped the pennant flags and used Simple Alphabet to spell out "fiesta" on the flags, cut out and popped up. Ribbon and a sentiment from Birthday Basics to finish--all products from PTI.


Then I thought how great Women of Life would look in this color combo, so I made this card too. All products except buttons (SU) are PTI. If you would like to play along with this challenge, please link to Nichole's blog and follow instructions. All entries will be eligible to win free CS for a year. Hope you enjoyed these cards. Thanks for stopping by!

These both turned out great! It is a really fun combo. I like how your cards look totally different and unique even using the same colors for both of them.

Amy, totally beautiful cards. Both of them. Just between us, I have not inked up It's a Celebration much for some reason and this card is an inspiration. Women of life card is just way too cool. Awesome.
