Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge

It's been a bit, but I'm finally back! I'm here today to share my card for this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge, brought to us by our very own Margaret Moody.

Here are the DEEtails:

I started with some Soft Suede card stock and added a Lattice die cut. Then I added some Pear Pizzazz patterned DSP and a strip of So Saffron card stock, punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border. Then I stamped some Pretty in Pink card stock with an image from Stampin' Up!'s Mixed Bunch in Versa Mark ink and punched it out with the coordinating Blossom punch. I added a Boho Blossom in Pear Pizzazz and a So Saffron button tied with some Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine. To finish things off, I added stamped the sentiment from SU!'s Trendy Trees on a strip of So Saffron. Hope you like it!

Don't forget to play along with the rest of the Pals using Margaret's fabulous sketch and your favorite crafting goodies. I can't wait to see what you create!

Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge

Hi there! Glad you stopped in for the new Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge! I love this fun spring color combination of Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip! I sure hope you'll play along!


I started with a Crumb Cake card and added some "rolling meadows" using the Tasteful Trim die and an extra strip of Certainly Celery card stock. Then I stamped my sentiment from SU!'s Trendy Trees. To hide the seam, I added some Early Espresso Baker's Twine. Then I added some Itty Bitty Bits flowers to fill in the grass. I punched out a butterfly from Pretty in Pink DSP and paper pierced a flight pattern directly onto my card. Hope you like it!
