Stampin Up, PALs Paper Arts challenge 224


So here we are, another Thursday, another PPA challenge.   I have to tell you, these challenges are often what keeps me going.  They keep me going to my room even times when I don't feel like it. Once I get there, I'm always up for it.

Simple sketch today, so many ways to get it done. Be sure to visit the challenge blog, just click on my link in the right side and check out the rest of the cards.

I decided to use some colors I hadn't played with in a while.  Whisper White of course, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Perfect plum.

My tip today is how to make this backing piece to the stamped piece. It's pretty easy. I glued the stamped Chalk Talk piece down to my Perfect plum piece of paper putting it right at 2 of the edges where I wanted it. Then I simply used my cutter to do the other two sides, and then each corner. I used a large hole punch for the center for my ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed.
