PPA124 Sketch Challenge & Clearance Rack BLITZ!

Hi friends! I'm so glad you checked in today to see the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge #124. When you play along with us, please label your card or project with PPA124. You might be one of our "picks" if you play along.

I began my card using Margaret Moody's sketch. My first element for my card was the Sweet Season Snowflake. I stamped it in White Craft Ink and embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I punched out the Crumb Cake card stock using the Scallop Circle punch. Next, I glammed it up a bit with a bunch of pearls inside the outline and one in the middle.

I chose a sentiment from the God's Blessings stamp set and inked it up in Cherry Cobbler, stamping it onto Whisper White card stock. I framed it with more Crumb Cake.

For the strip across the sketch, I chose to use Whisper White card stock that I punched with the Scallop Trim Border punch on both edges. I covered the middle of the strip with a piece of 1/2" Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.

My card base is Cherry Cobbler. I love this color combo. I think my Christmas cards will be a combination of these colors. I need to get started on them soon!

Thank you for looking and please leave me a comment. I love to read each one!
