Happy Birthday for PPA256




Happy Thursday! It's time for another Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This time it's a sketch. Feel free to use the sketch as your starting point to create something out of paper.


Using the sketch, I chose three prints from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack. These sheets are 6 x 6" and there are 4 each of 12 designs in each stack, for a total of 48 sheets. The price is right at $8 (138441).

Next, I made my card base out of Tip Top Taupe. I added a slightly smaller piece of Basic Black that I textured using the Chevron TIEF and my Big Shot. I placed the three banners (created using 1" strips of DSP and using my Banner Triple Punch) like they are on the sketch. 

I was thinking of using ribbon horizontally across the top, but it didn't look good, so I added a piece of Whisper White card stock instead. The sentiment "happy birthday" is from the Sprinkles on Top stamp set. I love this script! I decided to add two "&" Essentials Clips because they would shine a little and because I never know what to use those for!! :-) (They are now retired).

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card and hearing how I came up with this particular design beginning with our sketch. Please leave your comments--they make my day!
