First PPA challenge

I'm excited to participate in my first PPA challenge.  Head on over to Pals Paper Arts and play along too.  This challenge could not have come at a better time here.  It is freezing...literally...with sleet and icy roads.  The children are happy, they closed the schools early this afternoon.


For this card I used the Cold and Cuddly set.  I thought that was appropriate for this challenge.  It is so cold my walrus turned blue. I used Brocade Blue for the walrus and Mellow Moss for his hat.  The cardstock is Brocade Blue and  Mellow Moss.  I stamped the iceberg in Bashful Blue and used the same color chalk to color it.  The snowflakes were punched and attached with silver brads.  I ran my white paper through my bug with the snow dots embossing folder...and I thought it was done for the season.  I also ran the Mellow Moss paper through the bug with the swiss dots folder.  I sponged the edges of the Mellow Moss that is matted with the snowflake so it would stand out more.

I have seen quite a few cards with only two corners rounded and I love that look.  I kept forgetting about it until I saw Martha's sample.  Thank you Martha!

I really enjoyed doing this challenge and hope to participate in many more.

Thanks for stopping by....
