MFT Creative Challenge - March

Hi there!  It's time for the March Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things.  This month the design team was challenged to create using their favorite color combination using MFT's cardstock and ink.  This was a FUN challenge!  So fun, I made a set of three cards!

Head on over to the MFT blog for a link to each participating designer.

Let me preface by saying that I'm not much of a purple person, and while I don't use it much, I LOVE MFT's Grape Jelly.  I especially love Grape Jelly mixed with Black Licorice and Sweet Tooth, with a little Gumdrop Green thrown in for good measure :)

I used my new favorite set, Pretty Poppies along with Distressed Diamonds.  The Die-namics I used are Poppies and Leaves and the awesome Blueprints 1.  These cards were so quick to make thanks to the Blueprints Die-namics.  I love having so many die choices in just one set.

I inks I used are Grape Jelly, Gumdrop Green, and Black Licorice.  The cardstocks used are Smooth White, Sweet Tooth, Black Licorice, and Grape Jelly.

Here are all three cards together.


This was the first card I made.  LOVE the pop of Grape Jelly against the Black Licorice.


Here's the inside.


Here's the second card.


And the inside of the second card.


Last but not least, is the third card I made.


And the inside of card #3.


And together once again.


Here are the links to the products I used:
