Challenge Combo

Hello! Quick post today as I have to head out soon. My friend is an elementary school art teacher, and I'm volunteering in his class today! Should be FUN!

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the colors from the Play Date Cafe Creativity Challenge #27 and the sketch from Just Us Girls Challenge #31!!

And here's my creation:

The punch-bug image is from "Enjoy the Ride" (Papertrey Ink)----so super cute! And the set comes with a bunch of different sentiments that fit inside the license plate. For this card, I chose "Baby on Board." I think the green, blue, and cream color combo is a good neutral to use if you don't know whether the intended recipient of this card is having a boy or girl :)

I paper pieced the punch-bug (of course!!! love that technique!). The cream buttons are kind of glossy, so I thought they made cute headlights!

The sentiment is also from "Enjoy the Ride." Isn't it pretty?

There's still time to participate in both of these challenges, so GET INKY!!!! YAY! I'm off to get artsy with the kiddos! Have a great day!

So cute and pretty at the same time. Love the swirls! So, I've got to ask since I don't own one whip of a PTI product-do you stamp your image first and then die cut it or the other way around? Is the die cut worth it?
