Good day peeps! Yesterday was a busy day in Manhattan. It snowed huge flakes for a little while, I looked like a snowman walking down the street at one point. It rained after that… not the best day weather wise in the city from recent memory! I still had a good day and got to spend some time with my friend Kim! We went to the diner for an early dinner and then just relaxed. I have come to the conclusion that I am unable to just sit and relax in my house, I always feel like I need to be doing something so apparently I need to go elsewhere to relax! 🙂
Enough babbling, now on to today’s post which is for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This time we have a simple sketch from Margaret Moody…
A really nice simple sketch. I needed some bright colors after yesterday’s dreary wet weather and I think this card fits the bill. The base of the card is Tangerine Tango Card Stock. For the strips of paper I used two different patterns from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper* and adhered them to the base with SNAIL. The circle is punched out from Pool Party with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I embossed it with the Vine Street Textured Impressions Embossing Folder*. The flowers are from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set*. I stamped the flowers in Rich Razzleberry and cut them out with the Floral Frames Collection Framelits Dies. The centers are stamped in Summer Starfruit and are punched out with the Itty Bitty Bits Punch Pack. Both the flower and centers are mounted to each other and the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Bloomin’ Marvelous* Stamp Set and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and punched out with the Large Oval Punch and also adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the colors in the DSP, the brights and more subtles compliment each other nicely. I hope you enjoyed your Sale-A-Bration sneak peek today and thanks for checking in with me. Enjoy your day!
