Pals Paper Arts 170

Good morning! There is nothing like a night out in Manhattan with some shots and some friends! We went to a little place in Midtown called Barcelona Bar, not that most bars are big in Manhattan! They had a list of different shot on boards on the wall. Three lists of $5, a list of $7 and then one of more expensive ones. Some of the shots came with music and some with a performance by the bartender. For the Harry Potter shot he donned a Gryffindor scarf and you had to wear the sorting hat and use a wand! The bartender then lit the bar on fire and chanted spells. It was quite entertaining! Heather and I stopped and had some chicken and pepperoni pizza on the way home. A really good time with some great friends!

Today’s post is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge. This week they have a nice color challenge for us…

PPA 170

The base of my card is Early Espresso Card Stock. For the background I stamped the Postcard Stamp in Midnight Muse and added some script from the Notable Notions Stamp Set. The flowers are from the Flower Shop Stamp Set and are stamped in Early Espresso on Crushed Curry and punched out with the Pansy Punch. Some Midnight Muse cut out with the Little Leaves Sizzlit Die are adhered behind them and they are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The stamps are from the Postage Collection Host(ess) Stamp Set and are stamped in Midnight Muse and Early Espresso. I punched them out with the Postage Stamp Punch and they too are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really love the colors and I might venture to say that even with the flowers you could still give this to one of the men in your life. Thank you, as always, for taking some time to stop by and visit. I hope you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. Have a good Saturday!

  1. This postcard stamp was not on my wish list because I had no idea what I would do with it, but now I see! What a great and interesting background it makes, and I love what you layered on top.

  2. What can I say…..Perfection,Perfection & Perfection!!! The Flowers & Leaves, they ROCK, along with the Scription! Beautiful way- to use- those- color- combos!
    Marvelous Darling!!!!

  3. I do believe that you are right, this card is perfect for anyone! I love the background and the pieces that you dressed it up with, just fabulous. Thanks for having fun with the PALS this week!
