So Baja Calypso Easel Card For Pals Paper Arts

Welcome to the PPA #134 Color Challenge! I hope our Design Team offerings inspire you to make a card or project with our colors in mind. You can play along by uploading your card to our website. I enjoy the discipline of challenges, as they really make me get out of my comfort zone. I usually end up liking what I've created from them and knowing I don't get stuck in the "same old, same old" mold.

Here is a close up of my sentiment. I could have put it down one panel, but I liked having it above so I could write a personal note on the blank spot on the Baja Breeze card stock.
This is the part that holds the card when you stand it up. The So Saffron card stock is adhered to the Baja Breeze using Stampin' Dimensionals so that the front panel of the card will "catch" on it and hold it open.

Easel Card Dimensions:
Baja Breeze: cut to 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2" and 8-1/2"
So Saffron Flap Stop: 2-1/2" x 4"
Baja Breeze Card Front: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2"
So Saffron Tulip Piece: 4" x 5-1/4"

I used two soon-to-retire stamps on today's card: Triple Treat Flower and the sentiment from Trendy Trees. These stamps are available through May 31st. Also, the Dotted Scallop Border and 5-Petal Flower punches and the Modern Label Magnetic Movers and Shapers Die will retire on May 31st.
