Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge

Welcome to another Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge! I had fun really getting creative this week, and you can, too! Just make a card using the sketch above, any products you like and then upload it to the PPA site! You will be amazed by the Team's offerings, and that of the participants. 

I took the sketch and used the basic elements of it (rectangles, mostly) and then added some buttons and rhinestones off in the corner. I jazzed up the middle panel by die-cutting a banner from Kaleidescope DSP and framing it with Whisper White card stock. There was just enough room for the "enjoy" stamp. My friend is turning 40, so I die-cut the 4 and 0 using the retired Timeless Type dies. I adhered them to a Starburst die cut and added a Bermuda Bay bow. So pretty! I love the festive colors in this DSP. 

You can see photos of the products I used below, and clicking on them will take you right to my Online Store to order. The Decorative Dots Embossing Folder has $00.00 as a price because you can earn it *FREE* during Sale-A-Bration, which begins Tuesday, January 28th. 

Thank you for looking today! I hope you are inspired. I love to read your comments :-)
