PPA101-Celebrity Color Challenge

These ladies show you how you can play along at Pals Paper Arts! You just create a card or anything out of paper, and use the above Stampin' Up! Colors (OR any colors you like that are close). Then you simply directly link your photo using Inlinkz on our site. You are then "playing" along with us! Each week we pick 3 "picks" from the crowd and show their stuff on our Wednesday post. Last week we had Blog Candy to celebrate our 100th challenge and we are waiting for Melissa Hungria to email her address so we can shower her with prizes!

Now on to today's challenge:


The challenge colors simply got me started. I didn't want my card to be all blue-sy, so I took a cue from this wonderful designer series paper "Paisley Petals." I've had this paper for over a month, but had yet to use it! I am in love!
The paper goes so well with pearls, so I knew they would be part of my design, too!

I used the stamp set "Three Little Words" which also matches the paper! What do you think? I'd love to read your comments, so please leave one below.

Supplies List:
Card Stock: Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue
Designer Series Paper: Paisley Petals
Stamps: Three Little Words
Ink: Not Quite Navy, River Rock
Extras: Small Oval punch, Basic Peals Stampin' Dimensionals
