Stampin Up Pals Paper Arts Challenge 236

Here we are again, another PPA challenge. I love these, I find that I love to challenge myself and that I learn so much when I do and often end up with cards I may not ever have done if not for the challenge.
I was suppose to be gone right now, and given that I can't sit at my desk often or for long, I couldn't do up ahead, but my back went down and we had to come home.   I guess I just wasn't as ready as I thought, but I am improving.

So, I did vary from the sketch just a bit with the smaller Rose Red piece in the center, but after all, it's just a sketch and suppose to be a challenge.  This card features a new stamp set called Big Day. If you like it, get it now. It is a free set on the SAB (Sale a Brations) mini catalog.

Spend $50 from any active catalog and you can choose an item free from the SAB catalog. You can do that as much as you want. It's a great time to get free product and not just stamp sets.

I used the little candle stamp to add candles to the top piece, using the same color ink as the cardstock.
My colors are:  Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White and Pacific Point.

I sure hope this inspires you.   If you don't have catalogs, especially the new minis, Occasions and SAB, let me know and I will get them to you.

You're right, Lynn, the sketch is just a starting point! I love the Rose Red center with the candles and rhinestones all over it! Thanks for sharing your creation with the PPA this week!
