Pals Paper Arts is hosting a Celebrity Color Challenge (PPA101) this week showcasing the work of the very talented Canadian stamper, Lesley Croghan! Many of you know Lesley from her Paper Players challenge blog, where she hosts fun papercrafting challenges each week, just like we do at PPA!
My card for this week's challenge is simple, clean, and very contemporary! I featured the trio of blues in a trio of embossed floral circles from Just Believe. By combining floral pattern with additional patterns of stripe and text, this very simple layout receives a lot of eye-catching interest! Notice the neat and very tailored paper bow atop the faux ribbon? According to "those in the know" who follow papercrafting trends, paper bows are supposed to be "hot" this year! Who knew??!!
Click over to PPA for more inspiration and see how Lesley and my fellow PPA Design Team members used our trio of "Summer Blues" to create their cards! Come "play at PPA"! I can't wait to see what you make!
