Pals Paper Arts is hosting a Celebrity Color Challenge (PPA118) this week, inviting you to "play along" with our celebrity guest artist, the very talented Carrie Gaskin! Carrie and the PPA Design Team are showcasing an array of papercrafted creations using the fabulous color trio of Early Espresso, Soft Suede, and River Rock! Everyone is invited to play the PPA challenge using your favorite paper crafting brands and supplies. Our challenge is not exclusive to Stampin’ Up! products only!
My card features an image from one of my favorite new stamp sets, Nature's Pace! I used the thistle image to stamp a background and create the look of patterned paper! A wide band of Early Espresso card stock anchors the bottom of the card and complements the stamped thistle pattern. Faux ribbon, created with striped patterned paper in Soft Suede, adds a tailored touch to the card and serves as the perfect backdrop for the featured sentiment! Clean, easy and so very elegant!
If you like this week's card, please leave me a comment below! I love sharing my work with you and I love hearing from you, too!
