PPA Challenge Thursday

It's time for another Pals Paper Arts Challenge ... fun, fun.  This week the inspiration is an element of style -- to use ribbon or fabric.  Another concept I'm really liking ... keep it clean and simple!  Below is the photo that will get your creative juices flowing.

My creative juices knew I didn't want to do anything with Christmas colors.  Don't get me wrong, I love those colors but I've been working all week on my Christmas cards.  My eyes needed to see some different shades or color.  I wanted something simple, fun and youthful.  With that being said, this is my card for this week's PPA challenge.


Stamps:  Pun Fun, Happy Together, Itty Bitties, Itty Bitty Bits
Paper:  White, Black, Pacific Point
Ink:  Black, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  Non SU products--ribbon, brads,CB embossing folder, Prismacolor Markers, decorative scissors, Scor-Pal, SU Itty Bitty punch, ticket punch, dimensionals
All products are SU unless otherwise noted.
  • My brad would not lay correctly on the bottom corner and I kept messing with it only to ruin the corner so I just cut it off...yikes! 
  • I used my Scor-Pal to create the border at the bottom of my card.
  • I stamped the balloons once on the card and then again on scrap paper.  I cut out the balloons and adhered them to the card with dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
