Hmmm. My card matches the Pals Paper Arts Challenge badge! I didn't plan it, but I like it! Black, Red and neutral are always a good bet!
This week's challenge is a sketch, provided by our own Margaret Moody. Margaret cannot actively participate in PPA at the moment, due to a family illness, so if you could say a little prayer for her and her sister, I know she would appreciate it. I'm sure she will be back as soon as possible to play along with us.
For this card, I used the Fancy Flower XL punch, then cut the flowers into pieces for the large scallop border. I got his hot tip from my friend and upline, Mary Fish.
Also, for the sentiment, instead of stamping it the way it is laid out on the rubber, I used my Stampin' Write marker to color and stamp only "THANK", then separately color and stamp the "YOU" underneath. Using clear mount stamps, I just eye-balled it and it came out perfectly!
Here are my card particulars:
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler
Designer Series Paper: Newsprint

Extras: Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker, 3/4" and 1" circle punches, Fancy Flower XL punch, Chantilly 1/2" Crochet Trim, Stampin' Dimensionals
