PTI's Dawn Challenge

I had to participate in today's challenge that Nichole posted. The challenge was to choose a card that Dawn made where the colors inspired you and are different from what you typically use. I chose this first card she made. I loved the browns and the pop of green!! Not a combo I would reach for and I don't think I have ever used that combo!! I LOVE it!!! I chose to use my Birds of a Feather set, I love PTI but I think this is one of my very favorite sets. I stamped the eggs and nest twice, the second time I embossed and cut the images out, attaching with dimentionals. The Very Vanilla image was cut out using my circle Nestabilites, I then cut out a piece of Wild Wasabi using my pinking Nestabilites and the bottom layer was cut out using a larger size circle Nestability in Dark Chocolate. The base card is Kraft cardstock, I also ran a smaller piece through my Cuttlebug using my Bird Call embossing folder. I stamped the "New Beginnings" sentiment and embossed that as well at the top. I attached that layer to a layer of Wild Wasabi and punched a whole under the nest and ran Wild Wasabi ribbon through and tied in a bow. I attached those 2 layers to Dark Chocolate. This color combination is so pretty, I really like it and plan on using it again!!!
Tonight PTI is having a release party and at midnight et all the new sets will be available for sale!!!
