Pals Paper Arts 194

What day is today?! That’s right, kids, it’s FRIDAY!!!! 🙂 Let’s see, I taught myself some new things on the computer at work yesterday which is always a good way to add things to your resume. LOL! Last night, I installed Andrew’s brand new car stereo for him. This will insure that he can text using Siri via Bluetooth instead of his hands while he’s driving. Safety first! Tonight is the Satellite Lane concert at the Long Island Children’s Museum! Andrew has assured me that he will remind me to take pictures to show you! A very good way to start the weekend :-).

Before I get to today’s post for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge, I want to thank them for choosing my card from last week’s challenge as one of their picks. You can see my original post HERE and the winner’s post HERE

PPA 194

My card starts off with a base of Wisteria Wonder Card Stock and I covered the entire front with a piece of paper from the Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper Pack. Next, I stamped a piece of Smoky Slate with the Dictionary Background Stamp in Smoky Slate and cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. Before adhering it to the card, I pierced a circle around it using the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack. A piece of paper from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper Pack goes down the left side of the card. Before adhering it to the card, I wrapped some “Vintage” Wisteria Wonder Baker’s Twine around it and attached a Subtles Collection Designer Button to it. Three feathers from the Fine Feathers Stamp Set, two stamped in Wisteria Wonder and one stamped in Night of Navy, are cut out with my Paper Snips and adhered underneath the button. My greeting is from the Simply Celebrate Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of flagged Night of Navy. I like the contrasting look of the two DSP’s, the background being very graphic and precise while the panel is soft and random. Sometimes things that are complete opposites end up working really well together! I appreciate you stopping by today to see my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I hope you have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful start to your weekend!
