Marcia's & My Monthly Challenge

It's that time of the month when my sweet friend Marcia and I post our cards for our monthly challenge. We were both so enamored by the colors used in the new card kit that MFT came out with and we both missed the boat on purchasing the kit, so we decided to do the best with what we had and re-create our own cards using similar colors.
Here is a sampling of the colors used in the kit

I don't have many MFT colors of cardstock so here's a list of what I used:
MFT's Berrylicious, PTI's New Leaf, Winter Wisteria, Neenah Desert Sand and from Stampin' Up, Tempting Turquois and Eggplant.
Here's my cards:
Using PTI's "Daydreamer"

Using PTI's "Doodlie-Do" and sentment from Simon Says Stamp

Using PTI's "Brushed Blooms"

Using PTI's "Petite Pots"

Using MFT's "Spring Tulips"

I'll be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Spring
Word Art Wednesday
City Crafters ~ Polka Dots
Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge ~ Anything goes

Be sure to stop by Marcia's blog to see her beautiful creations. She's sure to WOW you, as always!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

OMG Birgit...these are ALL just fabulous!!!!!! I don't think I can even pick a favorite! Well maybe the 2nd card using Doodlie Do just a titch more than the others, but they are all totally stunning!! I think this may have been my favorite challenge yet! And I know for sure I will be using these color combos again and again! Thank you so much for "playing" along with me again my dear friend...I treasure our time together!! :0)
