Exciting News!

I have some very exciting news to share with you today! I'm the newest member of the Pals Paper Arts Design team! I hope you'll join me every Thursday for some PPA fun! You can play along using your favorite paper crafting brands and supplies - Stampin' Up! supplies are not required to play!

Today's PPA challenge is a gorgeous monochromatic color scheme in browns. Love it!

Here are the DEEtails:

I started off with a River Rock card and added some DSP in the same color. Then I took a strip of Soft Suede DSP, added some pleats and layered some Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon and Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon over it. I love the way this turned out. I stamped the image from SU!'s Easy Events in Early Espresso on some River Rock card stock. I matted it with some Soft Suede and added some strips of Early Espresso Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border. Then I embellished my card with a Designer Button and some Linen Thread.

Hope to see your creations on the Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week!
