Pals Paper Arts 214

Before I get my post started for today, I want to begin by saying thank you for all of your kind words in regards to my grandmother’s passing. It means a lot to me that you all not only take the time out of your day to read my blog, but to comment and share stories from your life with me as well. The level of kindness I receive from so many people on a daily basis is simply overwhelming and I just want you all to know how much I truly appreciate it. I share little bits of my life with you, and you in turn do the same with me. And that is why typing my post is the best part of my day. All that being said, today is of course Friday… still my favorite day of the week. LOL!

The card I have for you today is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge…

PPA 214

Now there are three colors that I would have never thought to put together! After thinking about it for a while I decided that I would ink up a new stamp set, actually my favorite from the new holiday catalog! And after you see which one it is, you’ll know why. For the base of the card I used Island Indigo Card Stock. My background is created using the hearts from the Hearts and Stars Decorative Mask. I sponged on Crisp Cantaloupe onto Whisper White Card Stock and stopped just short of the bottom where I adhered a piece of Sweet Sadie Designer Washi Tape. My greeting is from the @sosocial Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo. I adhered a piece of Wild Wasabi behind the background before adhering it to the base. The three feathers are from the Four Feathers Stamp Set*. They are stamped in Island Indigo on Whisper White Card Stock and then sponged over with Wild Wasabi Ink. I used the Feathers Framelits* to cut them out. Before adhering them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I brushed on some of my glimmer concoction. At the bottom of the feathers I adhered a Regals Designer Button with a Mini Glue Dot. You know that I love the Four Feathers and Feathers Framelits, I’ve been waiting for those for quite a while. I also like the way the glimmer concoction makes them iridescent in the light. I hope you enjoyed my card for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge that is filled with feathered #awesomeness. LOL! I’m so happy to have you come by and share part of my day. I hope that your Friday is a good one!

PS: Andrew says hello! 🙂
