PPA Puttin' on the Ritz!

Happy Thursday to you! Welcome to the Pals Paper Arts "Puttin' on the Ritz" Challenge. We hope you will play along using any of your favorite products to create a glitzy, bling-y, sparkly card or project.

As a special bonus this week, Pals Paper Arts is sponsoring a "MYSTERY" Blog Candy Blowout! ONE lucky participant will be showered with Stampin' Up! products from each one of the nine PPA Design Team members. What fun to watch as mystery packages are delivered from across the country. What a perfect holiday surprise!!

Now, more about my card~

I used Silver Glimmer paper to really make a shine. Add Dazzling Details (used on the snowflake, stocking foot and heel and around the "merry") and you have a card that outshines the rest!

I chose an untraditional set of colors for this Christmas card, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive. The stocking is a heavy sticker from the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit (124007 $21.95) in the Holiday Mini. You can order it through January 3rd, 2012. It is a great kit to use for tags, cards or anything you don't have a lot of time for. Simply peel your stickers and add them to your items along with the coordinated double-sided designer paper and 12 x 12 card stock. They also make wonderful coordinated, quick accents for your scrapbook pages, of course!

Here is a list of all of the Stampin' Up! products I used to create this card:

Card Stock: Textured Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Designer Series/Other Paper: Silver Glimmer, Patterns Brights
Stamps: Pennant Parade
Ink: Basic Black
Punches: 1-1/4", Scallop Circle and Snowflake
Extras: Big Shot, Perfect Pennants and Top Note dies
Embellishments: 1/8" Old Olive taffeta ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Dazzling Details, Stampin' Dimensionals
