It has been an epic day and a half for me. I managed to make three (3!!!) cards in one play session and it didn't even take me forever. I managed only because I had some amazing inspiration. I'm playing along this weekend with both Papertrey Ink's Create Along With Us: April 2016 challenge (which you can find here, at Nichole Heady's blog, and also at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, where the theme this week is April Showers Bring May Flowers. Since I LOVE flowers, and birthday cakes, it wasn't difficult for me to decide that I simply had to participate :)
These are the PTI Design Team projects I chose to be inspired by ...
I made two cards and neither of my projects ended up looking like any of these beauties, but I definitely was influenced by them.
For this first PTI card, I started out trying to somewhat replicate Amy's faith card (#2), using my Color Pop Florals kit where she used the new Butterflies kit. I wanted to use a colour scheme similar to Danielle's (#1) dreamy choices.

Believe it or not, I was influenced by burger cards for this cake project :) After seeing Amy's double cheese burger (#3), I wanted to make a double high Just Desserts naked cake (I found out this week that's what this type of cake is called, hehehe). And I wanted to feature my cake in a pretty frame, just like Kay did (#4) with her awesome burger. So much fun!
Next I did a card especially for the Simon Says Monday Challenge, and it actually turned to be more like Amy's faith card than my first one did ...
It's so very simple, but I do like it. I did a little bit of ink blending with some Shaded Lilac Distress Ink, just to give a hint of extra colour.
