Pals Paper Arts 154

Yup, it’s Monday again! Ugh! Anyway, enough complaining. Did you all have a good weekend? I had a nice one. I spent some time with the child and got some crafting done. Next weekend I’m going to try and fit in some relaxing, we’ll see how that goes. The weather you ask… LOL… it was a bit chillier than they said it was going to be yesterday but I have high hopes for today. High as in temperature!

Today I have my Pals Paper Arts card for you. This time the fine folks over there have given us a color challenge…

PPA 154

A different color combination, not one that I would have thought of. The base of my card is Raspberry Ripple Card Stock. The paper I used for the background is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. For the greeting I choose the Vintage Verses Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration. I stamped it on a Very Vanilla Square in Calypso Coral and backed it with a piece of Calypso Coral. I used the Labels Collection Framelits Dies to cut out the middle of a piece of Raspberry Ripple and adhered it over the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flower is punched out from a piece of Calypso Coral with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and there is a Basic Jewel Pearl in the middle. I stamped the butterflies from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set, also from Sale-A-Bration, in Calypso Coral on Very Vanilla. They are adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots and I slightly bent the wings up a little. I like the color combination a lot more than I thought I would. The three colors actually go quite well together. I hope you enjoyed my Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge card and as always, thank you very much for visiting! I hope you have an interesting Monday!
