PPA193 Happy Sketch

I can't believe how fast time goes by! It's time to play again with Pals Paper Arts! I chose to focus on the three circles to the left for this challenge. My immediate idea was to "frame" my flowers from Happy Watercolor. I had to experiment with different sizes of circle punches to see which would fit and how the flowers would show. I think they show okay. I'm not sure I like the blank space to the left of my frame OR the blank right side of the card, but it is finished! I could always ad a sentiment stamped in Basic Black, maybe?

Another part I liked was my pearl accents and the Basic Black ribbon and card base for "pop." What do you think? I love to read comments!! Thank you for stopping by. Consider adding your own card to the Pals Paper Arts Challenge blog!

Very pretty card. I like it just the way it is. The flowers peeking thru are just so pretty. Thanks for sharing your card with us.

I love your creation Patti and the way the flowers show through the circles! Maybe add a fussy cut part of the flower stamp on the right side of card if you really don't like the blank part? It's a lovely card!

Patti MacLeith said...

Rosalie, I like your suggestion! Thanks so much!

This is so pretty, Patti! Love the tiny pearls and window to your pretty flowers. I had a hard time fitting those three circles too.

You're welcome Patti! I can make a card tonight and tomorrow I see something that needs to be added to it! Our eyes see different things!

Ann Schach said...

Beautiful, Patti! Absolutely beautiful...right down to the pearl accents! If you want to add something to the left, add another snippet of ribbon or try a sentiment...but I love it as it is!

Patti MacLeith said...

Ann, another snippet of ribbon would be good, too!! Thanks!

Patti, this card is SO pretty! The color coordination is striking - black always adds so much. And the three window circles with the colored flowers behind makes you want to see more! Thanks for playing with us at Pals Paper Arts this week!
