Hello everyone! Welcome to the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #133-Sketch by Margaret Moody!

My colors were chosen with this print from Summer Smooches designer paper in mind. I was not sure what to do with the circle part of this sketch, and then I took another look at the Paper Doily Die and thought if I snipped the inner circle out, I'd have the perfect size for my square card! It worked out perfectly. Instead of using paper elements for my vertical strips, I used two colors of seam binding and tied them up with knots.

Banner end was created using my (retired) photo corner punch. Notice my sentiment? It is from a soon-to-retire stamp set called "Grateful Greetings." If you must have this set, you must purchase it before May 31st! (116511 $36.95) There is a host of sentiments in this set for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine's Day. Click HERE to see 14 cards/projects I made using this set.

Consider playing along with the Pals! We'd love to see what you do with this week's sketch!

Those double knots were a great idea, Patti! Your paper doily looks great here, just the right element!

Patti! This is definitely one of my favorites of yours! Beautifully done. Love the color palette and the focal point!

This is such a lovely card--brightly happy and soft at the same time. Each element works so well together!

smart to give grateful greetings a shout out before it retires. it's the perfect balance for this card. very chic to layer the die cut over the circle! hugs, m
