PPA28 Play Along!


Here is my submission for Pals Paper Arts Challenge #28. It's a color challenge! Use the following colors:

My card base is Melon Mambo. I matted a piece of designer paper from the Welcome Neighbor Paper Pad (available *free* with $50 purchase--See Sale-A-Bration) with Basic Black card stock after I used the new Scallop Trim Border Punch (also *free* with $50 purchase--See Sale-A-Bration).
Then I stamped the Vintage Label (*free* with $50 purchase--See Sale-A-Bration) circle in Melon Mambo onto Whisper White card stock and popped it out using the Scallop Circle Punch.
In the middle, I added a Basic Black die cut from the Birds and Blooms Sizzlits die and used dimensionals to pop up the Small Heart punched flourish from Tiny Tags (Occasions Mini Catalog).
I tied a Whisper White Taffeta ribbon around the length of the matt to finish the card.



Inside I used one of the 7 stencils from Love U (in the Definitely Decorative Catalog) set with a sponge dauber and Melon Mambo ink from the puddle on the top of the ink pad. This is done onto Whisper White very lightly so that you can still write on the inside of the card.

Play along at Pals Paper Arts!
