Here is my card for Dawn's week 2 challenge. I strugged with Week 1's colors and never did post the card I made. I love the colors this week! My supplies are: Papertrey Ink - Friends till the End stamp, Spring Moss and Dark Chocolate paper, Spring Moss ink; Prism turquoise paper; Martha Stewart embossed edge; rubber stamp from Montoroa Ltd in New Zealand. I bought it last year in Christchurch.

Here's another card that used scraps and paper that I've had for a long time. I am going to make a concerted effort to continue using paper and stamps that I already have and and resist the urge to BUY more. It's hard when there are so many beautiful new products coming out. At least it's cheaper to buy DP than to buy a metre of fabric. I do quilt and used to buy fabric, but my time is limited, I had a shoulder injury and making cards is a much quicker reward than making a quilt! I bought the little felt flowers in NZ, but found very similar ones at Zellers in town.
Here are some cards I've been making over the last two weeks. My folder of scraps keep keeping fatter. The first card uses the new Damask Papertrey Ink stamp which is really a great set.
I'm trying to use different color combinations than I usually do and use existing stamps (and not buy more until I do) and scraps of paper.
I was going for the Andy Warhol look with the second card.
