It’s the weekend peeps! Woo hoo! I had a pretty good day at work yesterday. I got to have a staged fight with a trainer that was teaching an investigation class. All of the people in the class thought the fight was real, it was great! LOL! I went to a Stamp-A-Tag at Sandy’s last night, that’s always fun! Today… lots to do and I have my “work” holiday party tonight. Oh, and it’s sneaker Saturday too! Let’s see what I can get done!
Before I get to today’s post I wanted to thank the amazing Mary Fish for selecting my card as her pick for last week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge. You can see my original post here and the Pals Paper Arts winners post here. Now this week from Pals we have a color challenge…
I was going to do a Christmas card but I really want to keep those sneak peeks coming so I went with a birthday card instead! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. I used the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder** to emboss a piece of Wild Wasabi and backed it with a piece of Rose Red for my background. The greeting is from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set* and is stamped once in Rose Red and the again in Wild Wasabi so I could punch out the “a” with the 1/2″ Circle Punch and pop it up on a Stampin’ Dimensional. I stamped it on one of the tags from the Stamp a Tag kit and tied a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine in a bow on top. The pinwheels are from the Starburst Sayings Stamp Set* and are stamped in Rose Red and cut out with the Starburst Framelits Dies*. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the card in a cog like pattern. I love the Decorative Dots Folder, it looks a little like confetti and makes a great background for a birthday card! Thank you for checking in with me today to see my Pals Paper Arts card for this week’s color challenge. I really do appreciate your visits and comments, have a super Saturday! 🙂
