PPA 8 Play Along!

KISS.  Keep It Simple, Sweetie. That is the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #7, beginning today! Create a simple card (or goodie box, scrapbook page), using minimal layers, stamps, embellishments.  Please play along-it's FUN!
I began with a Very Vanilla card base, layered on a piece of Melon Mambo. I then ran another piece of Very Vanilla through my Big Shot using the small dots Texturz Plate and trimmed the bottom edge with my Eyelet Border punch. I topped this with a Full Heart punchout of Melon Mambo decorated with dots and a sentiment and flourish that I snipped out of the Friendly Words Jumbo Wheel (also stamped in Melon Mambo onto Very Vanilla). I added this to the center of my card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Voila! Simple and, I think very cute! This card could say 'hello' or 'I'm sorry' very easily.

If you need any items from Stampin' Up! to decorate your cards or scrapbooks, please shop with me 24/7.

Shopping List:
Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Very Vanilla

I would have never thought to use the wheel like that! You are on your game, girl!

I've been trying to figure out where that sentiment is from.

Fantastic use of a wheel.

Love the use of white space too. Rockin' card, Patti!

The color combo is great - and what a good idea to snip images from a wheel - I am going to go check out the few wheels I have and see what I can use from them - thanks Patti!
