Book Plate Cards

I had to get a number of cards done for one of my favorite card buyers, and since she was in town to join me on a fabulous fall walk event my deadline was this morning.  I've made a number of these cute book plate cards before (click here, here) and she liked them so much she wanted a set.  So I used a few different color challenges to help inspire me to make up a number of them.  I let her choose the sentiments, which was a fun little was to personalize the cards.



These ones use the Play Date Cafe colors, happy 2nd anniversary guys!  Since I missed last week's PDC (eek, how can that be!) I decided to make up for it this week, this being my 2nd entry. 



These two use this week's ColourQ (oops, missed the deadline) and Color Throwdown colors.  Love the idea of taking Halloween colors and making non Halloween cards.

And this one is for the Embellish challenge, I hid a button under the sentiment. And since I colored in all the vases I'm going to add this to the CAS-ual Fridays "Just add color" challenge.  And since Wee Memories is having a "Free for all" challenge this week I'll add this to their challenge too.


Materials: PTI All Booked Up,  PTI Mat Stack 3 & 4, PTI Book Print Impression plate, Core'dinations cardstock, PTI chocolate chip card stock, black card stock, water color paper, water color pencils, EK Success 1 3/4th inch circle punch, PTI Mat Stack 3 die, Tim Holtz Distress stain antique linen, Versafine black ink
