Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge

Ooh! It's time for another fun Pals Paper Arts challenge! This week we have a great sketch by the fabulous, Margaret Moody. Check it out.

Here are the DEEtails:

I was in the mood for some Soft Suede and Crumb Cake, which is how this card came about. I started with some Crumb Cake card stock and the Woodgrain embossing plate along with some Soft Suede DSP for the background. I added a teensy bit of Gumball Green card stock punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch to break it up a bit. I love this little pop of green! Then I added some Early Espresso Baker's Twine wrapped around my woodgrain page. I stamped the letters from Morning Post Alphabet, cut them out, and added them to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock matted with Soft Suede. A few Stampin' Dimensionals makes it pop on my card. Then I stamped the sweet nest image from Take Care. I colored in the leaves to tie in that strip of Gumball Green. Stampin' Dimensionals were used to adhere the Pool Party eggs and add a nice pop of color.
