Pals Paper Arts 178

Dinner and a movie was a good time last night. Heather and I had some Chinese food and then we watched The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, it was hysterical! I’m off to Manhattan this morning, hopefully it won’t be too cold, I would like to take a little walk along the river. It’s supposed to be sunny so let’s hope the weather holds up!

Today I have my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge. This time they have given us some neat colors to work with…

PPA 178

All of the colors are in the Soho Subway DSP so I decided to do a Christmas card with a slightly vintage feel. The base of my card is Summer Starfruit Card Stock and I used the Post Card Stamp, stamped in Early Espresso and backed with a piece of the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper for the background. The greeting is heat embossed in Early Espresso on a Crisp Cantaloupe tag and is from the Christmas Messages Stamp Set. A leftover piece of Vanilla Bakers Twine from a kit make the bow and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. My three ornaments are from the Christmas Collectibles Stamp Set and are stamped in Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit. I used the Christmas Ornament Punch to punch them out and they too are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. You know how I love a non-traditional Holiday card and this one definitely fits the bill. Thanks so much for visiting with me today to see my Pals Paper Arts card for this week’s color challenge. I hope that you have a very nice Saturday! 🙂
