It's time for Joanne's What You've Got Challenge! This month's challenge is to create something using Stampin' Up!'s Berry Bliss Designer Series Papers, using at least THREE different prints from the pack! Joanne's also giving away a prize!

I hope you'll play along! See all the challenge details .... HERE! on Joanne's blog, ...just a little something... . Check out more samples from my friend, Dawn Easton, Treasure Oiler Designz.

I used Beate John's tri-fold pocket card tutorial (again!) to create my first sample for May's WYG Challenge. The three prints from Berry Bliss that I used include a) the body of the pocket, b) the belly band, c) the circle pull for the insert, and d) I'm going to count the inside of the pocket since the opposite side is visible. I just love these tri-fold pocket cards ... they are EASY!
Paper: Berry Bliss DP, Close To Cocoa, Pretty In Pink, and Purely Pomegranate CS
Embellishments: Pink Fire Rhinestone Brad, Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Pretty In Pink Brad
Tools: 5-Petal Flower Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Paper Piercer and Mat Pack
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

This next WYG Challenge Card was inspired by Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday 36 Sketch but took a slightly different turn on the center panel. The background uses two Berry Bliss prints, and the sentiment is stamped directly on the third Berry Bliss print. Edited To Add: Miss one! There's a fourth Berry Bliss print used on this card - the Pretty In Pink piece that the ribbon is tied around and backs the Flower Fusions.
