PPA130 Color Challenge and a Question


Welcome to this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge! We hope you will join us in creating a project using the colors: Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke and another color of your choice!

I briefly thought I would use Crumb Cake as my third color, but I loved how the Whisper White set off my Lucky Limeade designer paper.



Here is a close up of my greeting, from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I stamped the phrase in Lucky Limeade, adorned it with Glimmer Brads and popped up the Modern Label using Stampin' Dimensionals.


After I was finished and had photographed my card, I saw this brand new roll of Lukcy Limeade 1/8" Organdy ribbon laying on my desk. It's one of the items I received *free* for placing a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration!

What do you think? Is it better with or without the ribbon??? I'd love to hear what you think, so please leave your comments below.

Oh so cute, Patti! Everything worked together so well!

Oh my gosh, Patti! This is so cute and clever! The Whisper White was the perfect choice. I like it best without the ribbon.

This is one awesome card, Patti! Love how put together this gem! As for the ribbon, I honestly had to look for it in the photo. I like it without the ribbon.

Ah, what a clever little leprechaun you are! How green was my heart punches to create a lucky lichen colored wonder! (All said with an Irish accent!)

Patti such a clever use of hearts. I personally like the illusion of a tree, therefore didn't care for the ribbon. But very creative!!
