It's time for another Simple Sketch Challenge at Pals Paper Arts! Play along with us and make a card using the sketch I designed for this week's challenge (PPA29)! Upload your creation via Mr. Linky before 12:00 NOON CST on Tuesday, February 16th, and you just might win some blog candy!
Today's card was obviously made for Valentine's Day, but could easily be adapted for any occasion! I created my own designer paper using the starburst image from Stampin' Up!'s Hello Again set by stamping Real Red onto Only Orange card stock. Smart stripes, courtesy of Melon Mambo Patterns Designer Series Paper, compliment the fun and playful starburst print. Bright colorful flower images from the set were stamped with Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red, Only Orange, and Melon Mambo! Each flower was enhanced with a matching adhesive rhinestone, adding a fun touch of "bling" to each bloom! A scalloped border in Real Red was punched and added, along with Real Red buttons "tied" with slivers of Only Orange card stock to mimic thread. My Valentine sentiment from Grateful Greetings was stamped in Real Red, directly onto the Kraft card stock base to finish my card!
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN! Get out those stamping supplies and get busy! Visit Pals Paper Arts for more inspiring ideas from the PPA Design Team using this week's sketch! And, don't forget...there's blog candy up for grabs! I can't wait to see your card!Stamps: Hello Again, Grateful Greetings
