It was a pretty good Friday yesterday. Work was crazy busy but I did go to dinner with Danielle and Anthony last night. We went to Buffalo Wild Wings and had some fried pickles which are quite yummy. It has been overcast here for the past couple of days but it hasn’t rained yet which is ok by me. I think we are actually supposed to see the sun later on today which will be nice. I’ll be going to Manhattan at some point this weekend, just not sure just when. I’ll also be working on a bunch of projects today which always makes me happy! What are you all doing this weekend?
Today’s card is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge. Thanks to Kerry for choosing my card for her pick for last week’s color challenge. You can see my original post here and the Pals post here. This week we have another color challenge…
A nice subtle fall combination. The base of my card is Always Artichoke Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack. I stamped the greeting from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set in Cajun Craze right on the background. A square of Cajun Craze that I embossed with the Petals a Plenty Textured Impressions Embossing Folder creates the backdrop for the stamped image. Both of the images are form the Best of Flowers Stamp Set, the silhouette image is stamped in Always Artichoke and backed with the same color. I stamped the flower in Cajun Craze on So Saffron and punched it out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. A Subtles Designer Button adhered with a Mini Glue Dot completes the card. I love the patterns in the new DSP Stacks and having just the edges peek out from behind the background is a nice change. Thanks for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I hope that you all have a productively fun Saturday! 🙂
