It's time for another Sketch Challenge (PPA188) at Pals Paper Arts, hosted by the Resident Artists of Team 1! I think you'll like the versatility of the simple sketch I've designed for you this week. I hope you'll get out your papercrafting supplies and join us for this challenge!
I created a clean and simple card that showcases one of the papers available for free during Stampin' Up!'s upcoming Sale-A-Bration promotion (January 28 - March 31, 2014). I chose colors used in the paper for my punched flower (Summer Starfruit, Whisper White and Crisp Cantaloupe) and die cut leaves (Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding). I really love the contrast of the colorful paper and the flower against the soft Sahara Sand card base! Pool Party was used to stamp and stack the sentiment, adding a subtle presence and balance to the overall layout. Fresh, modern and fun!
Please let me know what you think of my card by leaving a comment below! I really love sharing my work with you and hope you find it inspiring!
