Lay in the Sun...Reverse Confetti Color Challenge!

It feels SO good to be crafting again!!!  Thanks to everyone who commented on my card for the PTI blog hop the other day, I had a lot of fun, just making something for me :).  Wellllll, I'm back again today, because as soon as I saw this color challenge over at Reverse Confetti, I was in LOVE.  Totally love this color combo!!!
I've been playing around with my copics alot lately, and just wanted to do something bright and warm.  It's been SO COLD here in NY, I thought of a nice Caribbean getaway...ahhhhhhhh....

A little gold glitter sets off the 'shimmer' in the water...oh, to be in Grand Turk, lol....that's what this color of water reminds me of.  Have you ever been there?  It's gorgeous.  I was fortunate enough to go on a cruise with my entire family the Summer before last, and Grand Turk was one of the stops.  It was my favorite.  I wish we had more time there than we did.   Anyway - thanks Jen for this awesome color combo, and all of the inspiration.  The sentiment is from Count Your Rainbows.

What's your favorite vacation place?  Snowy Colorado for skiing? Or someplace warm and sunny??  I'd love to hear! :)

Hope you have a great week!

PINK PTI Blog Hop!

Long time, no see!!  Seems like time is just FLYING by these days, so many things to do, so little time.  My children's schedule keeps me super busy these days, so crafting has not been at the top of the list, but I'm trying to make a point to MAKE more time for it!

I just got a box of new goodies from PTI, and decided it would be a good time to put some of them to use!  The challenge this month is to feature the color PINK :).  I've been loving all of the cards made with that tilted layer (though I don't have the dies) but I made my own, and went with it.  

The scalloped trim was made with the heart border die, and I used the small heart image from Heart-2-Heart #3 .  The sentiment is from Wonderful Words: Love Mini Stamp Set.  Clean and simple - added some white iridescent sequins for some sparkle :)  
This card also fits the current Case Study Challenge - a great card by Donna Mikasa
Thanks for popping by today, can't wait to see the other projects everyone has made!  Happy Saturday, make it a great one! :)
