Pals Paper Arts 168

A very good Saturday morning to you! The weather here is still gorgeous, nice and cool at night and not too hot during the day. Hopefully it holds out. It would be so nice if it could be like this year round. I’m off to Manhattan this morning to see my friend Kim. We’ll get some breakfast and then wander around for a while. I’m thinking I would like some Mediterranean food for lunch. I’ll see if I can find anything interesting to take a picture of and post it tomorrow. 🙂

For today’s post I have my Pals Paper Arts card for this week’s sketch challenge…

PPA 168

The base of today’s card is Smoky Slate Card Stock. I used a piece of the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack for the background. The greeting is from the More Messages Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo. I used the Christmas Collectibles Stamp Set to stamp an ornament in Island Indigo and punch it out with the Holiday Ornament Punch. The second ornament is from the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party and cut out with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies. A stamp from the A Round Array Stamp Set is stamped in Smoky Slate and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. A few Basic Jewels Rhinestones around the greeting and on the ornaments finishes off the card. I love the simplicity and the colors are fast becoming a holiday favorite of mine. Thanks very much for paying me a visit today to see my Pals Paper Arts card for this week’s sketch challenge. I hope that you have a fun little outing planned today too and that you enjoy your Saturday!
