Pals Paper Arts Challenge - PPA151

Oh my goodness - I seem to have caught the Sketch Challenge bug.

Not only am I really enjoying the challenges, my card making is being pushed outside my comfort zone. I am trying combinations I would never have tried before. Mainly because I am trying not to be too predictable with my design.

This card is my entry for the Pals Paper Arts challenge.

I started with a Very Vanilla base and added a broad strip of Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper that had been joined to a strip of Pool Party, embossed using one of the Delicate Designs embossing folders. Tied around the mat is a length of Island Indigo Bakers Twine, threaded with a Tiny Tags punched shape.

I used the smallest Labels Collection Framelit to cut a piece of Summer Starfruit card that I embellished with a Brushed Bronze Designer button, tied with a piece of Island Indigo ribbon from the Sale-a-bration Button and Brad set.

I am pleased with the finished article and getting more adventurous each day!

  1. Very pretty, Paula! I love how you used designer paper on one half, and embossed the other. The tiny tag attached to the Baker's Twine is a cute touch! Thanks for playing at Pals Paper Arts!

  2. Love your card, Paula! That Lucky Limeade pops out and makes a statement on the DSP and embossed card stock. The button topping it looks terrific with that Island Indigo ribbon too. Beautiful job! Thanks for joining us at the PPA!

  3. Thanks Ladies. You wouldn't believe how excited I was joining in the challenge and having such lovely comments! xx

  4. Wow! This is so pretty! I love the colors and the way you did the twine and the sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at Pals Paper Arts this week!

  5. Thanks Cindy. Can't wait for the next challenge :-)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.

I love to hear from you.
