PPA111 - Sketch

Hello, and welcome to the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #111- Sketch by our Design Team member, Margaret Moody. Her sketches really get you going, so I hope you'll take full advantage and play along with us!

I wanted to use my brand new package of Spice Cake designer series paper, so I cracked it open and began with the Pool Party print for my background, which I cut to fit the Crumb Cake card base.

For the #4 piece of the sketch, I decided to matt another print from Spice Cake using More Mustard. To add interest, I tied a piece of Pool Party 3/8" ruffled ribbon in a knot and placed it around the bottom of the element. On the top, I placed the sentiment from "Grateful Greetings." It is stamped and matted with Crumb Cake.

Instead of a ribbon or border punch across the upper section, I punched and trimmed the branches from the Bird Builder punch. I used More Mustard and Crumb Cake card stock.

For the three elements in the upper left corner, I used Square Fire Rhinestone Brads in the Pumpkin color. I placed them by using my Paper-Piercing Tool and Mat Pack. This insures that they are placed in a straight line and each is the same distance from the other.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card and that you will leave feedback for me!

Thank you to all of you who ordered my Countdown Calendar Kits! I had fun putting your kits together. I do have a few more if anyone else is interested.
