PPA188 Sketch Challenge


I hope this Thursday finds you feeling great and ready for a challenge! Above is my answer to the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge. I used some new products that you can earn *free* from the Sale-A-Bration brochure (goes live January 28th), and from the Occasions Mini Catalog as well. 


I loved the simple layout of this week's sketch and how it let the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper do all of the talking! The colors in Sweet Sorbet are Basic Black, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistchio Pudding, Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Summer Starfruit and Whisper White. I think the floral pattern above is my favorite print from the pack. 

The Crisp Cantaloupe image in the large circle is from the Petal Parade stamp set also in the SAB brochure. The sentiment stamped in the small circle using Basic Black is from the Starburst Sayings stamp set that is available now in the Occasions Catalog.

The Pistachio Pudding panel has been embossed with the new Decorative Dots Embossing Folder from the Occasions Catalog.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Please leave your comments below! I'm so glad you take the time to comment!

Oh this paper is SO pretty! I love how you paired it with the Pistachio Pudding and ran the coordinating strip of DSP up the side. Cuteness!

I like seeing all the different designs people came up with using this same sketch. Your color palette is awesome. The embossed piece really pulls it together. Thanks for the visit earlier and cheering me on in this challenge.
