Pals Paper Arts 197

I had a very relaxing day yesterday, something that I don’t get to do very often but I did actually enjoy it. I worked on some projects in the morning and in the afternoon I went over to Heather’s and we watched Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Not the happiest movie I have seen lately but a good one none the less. It brought back memories as I was in Manhattan that day and will never forget it. After that I came back home and worked on some more projects (I got a lot of cards made!) and then watched some TV. My friend Louis stopped by for a bit to catch up. All in all a very nice day! How was your Saturday, I hope that it was as relaxing as mine!

My post for today is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge and this week we have a sketch from MDS maven Nicole Watt…

PPA 197

I knew what I was going to use for #2 and 3 as soon as I looked at it! The base of my card is Sahara Sand Card Stock and the background is a piece of Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, One of my tags is also a piece of the same Designer Series Paper and the other a piece of Whisper White, both punched with the Angled Tag Topper Punch. My greeting is from the Yippee Skippee Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party. Under that I stamped the image from the Petal Parade Stamp Set in Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit. The bottom panel is a piece of Summer Starfruit. I used my Fringe Scissors on a piece of Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe and adhered them to the panel and then to the card. I find that if you temporarily adhere a piece of card stock across the top of the piece when you use the Fringe Scissors it makes it easier to get a nice even fringe. The flower and the sliver of cork are from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack and finish off the card nicely. I had originally left off the cork but the more I looked at the card the more I knew it needed something more. So there you have my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. I hope you enjoyed the card and I thank you for taking some time to come and see me. Have a great Sunday! 🙂
