Pals Paper Arts 145

Good morning! I hope that you are all having a great weekend! I had a wonderful time yesterday at Great Adventure with my friends! I have to say that El Toro is my favorite roller coaster I think of all time. We went on it three times and most of the other ones twice. I’m off to Manhattan today and then I have some serious crafting to do later! I also want to take a minute to wish my friend Sandy a very Happy Birthday!

Today’s post is for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This week we have a sketch from Margaret Moody…

I’ll say it again, I love any sketch with a flagged piece on it! The base of my card is Gumball Green Card Stock. The next layer is a piece of Cherry Cobbler that I pierced each side using the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. The flagged piece on top of that is a piece of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper. Both of those pieces are adhered to the card with SNAIL. The main image consists of the window from the Cottage Window Stamp Set that I stamped in Soft Suede and cut out with my Paper Snips. I stamped the tree from the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set in Gumball Green and then stamped the snowflakes from the Cottage Window Stamp Set with the Illuminate Glimmer Pad. The background is Primrose Petals stamped in Primrose Petals with the Woodgrain Background Stamp. I mounted it to a piece of Soft Suede and then adhered it to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler, punched out with the Word Window Punch and also mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the snowy image through the window and the unexpected pop of Primrose Petals. I hope that you enjoyed my Pals Paper Arts Challenge card. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day! 🙂
