PPA236 Sketch to Enjoy

The sketch by Kerry Willard Bray is a fun one, so I hope you will join us at Pals Paper Arts and play along by creating a card using the sketch as a starting point. Then, you can take a photo, post to a blog or gallery and upload your link on our blog. You'll by "playing" along and exercising your creativity!

I chose my color scheme from the Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper. Using a Calypso Coral card base, I created a mat in Night of Navy and then gave it some texture using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and my Big Shot.

I really wanted to use the CUTE Calypso Coral Pom Pom Trim (new in the Occasions Catalog), so I made the horizontal line in the sketch with two pieces of it. I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere each pom pom. The Whisper White banner was created using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. "Enjoy" was cut using the same thinlit set and a Birthday Bash print. My teeny vertical flags were each cut from prints in the Birthday Bash paper. I used the Bitty Banners Framelits. The entire element was adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals to lift it over the pom poms.

Come back tomorrow. I will show the card that I made when I first sat down to make this one. I completely forgot that I needed to follow a sketch! I got all excited using this same color scheme and the Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper!! That's what happens when you haven't created in awhile ;-)

I hope you like my card! Won't you take a few seconds to leave me a comment? I love to read each one.
