papertrey ink button challenge

Do you ever have that perfect card in your head, but your supplies just don't let you carry it out?  That was this card.  (Clearly I need to go buy more stamping goods.)   I had some adorable "simply chartreuse" buttons but my Copics didn't match. Thus the black buttons.  I still like the clean and simple look of this card though.
stamp: A muse pea pod & "sweet pea"
ink: Memento tuxedo black
other: buttons, Copic markers

papertrey ink color challenge 4

So the Papertrey Ink color challenge contest is closed, but I liked these colors and instantly wanted to make a baby card for twins!  For my fourth card, I used these colors from Papertrey: aqua mist, sweet blush, harvest gold,  simply chartreuse.

stamp: Memory Box onesies, Papertrey frame
ink: Memento tuxedo black, VersaFine onyx black
other:  Papertrey die cut, ribbon, Copic markers
