We're hosting a new Color Challenge (PPA140) at Pals Paper Arts and we hope you'll join us and play along! Our cheerful colors for the challenge are Summer Starfruit, Marina Mist, and Real Red!
I created tiny pinwheels for a fun banner to showcase the colors in this happy color trio! The banner takes the stage against the newsprint background paired with strips of brightly patterned prints of DSP. I had no ribbon in blue that would work for a bow, so I created my own from matching DSP in Marina Mist. For the finishing touch, I embellished the bow with a Real Red button threaded with Baker's Twine. Fun and easy!
This Congratulations card is headed to a special friend who recently celebrated some remarkable career accomplishments! I hope she will like the card! I love the way it turned out and I hope you do too! If you like my card, please leave me a comment! I always love hearing from you!
