PPA 74 ... Sketch Challenge

I know I always say this is a wonderful sketch to work with and I'll use it again. Well, this sketch was so much fun to play with.  It can be a simple card or you could really dress it up.  Margaret Moody pulled a great sketch out of her magic hat this week.  Click on over to Pals Paper Arts and join in the fun.  Also, don't miss out on the event of the season when Pals Paper Arts unveils it's Best Dressed List for 2010 on December 30th.  See which of the previous Artist Picks makes the cut as the Best of the Best!

Here is the sketch for this week ...
Now here is what I created ...

Stamps:  Flower Fancy, Flight of the Butterfly
Paper:  Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Very Vanilla
DSP:  Concord Crush
Ink:  Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait
Accessories:  Butterfly punch, pearls, dauber, dimensional, polka dots embossing folder, stamp-a-ma-jig
All supplies are Stampin' Up.
  • Flower Fancy is a two-step stamping set ... love it!
  • Used the stamp-a-ma-jig for the inside flower and leaves.
  • Pearls were added to the center of the flower for dimension.
I was really pleased with outcome of this card.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you and your families have a wonderful and safe holiday!

Merry Christmas,
