Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge

Hello friends! Time for a fun new sketch challenge with the Pals at PPA. Here's what Margaret Moody has designed for us this week...

Here are the DEEtails:

I decided to add a few extra embellishments on my interpretation of the sketch. I hope you'll approve... I started with a Cherry Cobbler card and added a strip of Gumball Green DSP trimmed with the scallop punch. Some diagonal stripes from the Season of Style DSP stack make a great background for some Crumb Cake card stock, stamped with the lovely sentiment from the Joy to the World sentiment set and embossed in Early Espresso. I added a few Gumball Green DSP leaves, punched from the Owl punch and added some Rhinestone Jewel berries. I added just a teeny bit of Gumball Green stitched satin ribbon to the edge for a little extra texture. Hope you like it!

Be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the Pals Paper Arts Resident Artists. Then link up your creation, using this fun sketch! Can't wait to see what you create!

  3. I love your use of that DSP, it's perfect! The holly is so sweet in the corner. Great card!
