PPA2 - Simple Sketch


Have y'all seen the fun stuff happening over at PPA (Pals Paper Arts)? I have been following the blogs of the girls on the design team for several months and let me tell you they are all awesome!! So, I was very excited when they announced their PPA Challenge site. I didn't get to play along last week because it was a color challenge using the new Stampin ' Up In Colors, which I currently don't own. *sniffle* So, I was happy to see that this week's challenge is a simple sketch and I was excited to whip up this fun birthday card. The only SU products I managed to use were the Happy Birthday sentiment from Something to Celebrate using Bashful Blue ink. My patterned paper is from Making Memories...I love this doublesided Flower Patch series! The butterfly is cut out of the reverse side of the pattern the sentiment is mounted on. Oh, and I can't forget to mention a couple of goodies I used from a CardMaker magazine Card Swaps message board kit swap...the pretty flower is from Ellie & the yellow ribbon is from Teresa. Thanks girls!


And that concludes my marathon of posting, I'll let you get back to your regularly scheduled lives!!

Lucky the birthday person who receives this well-thought-out card! Your butterfly looks like he will take off. Very nicely done. I like the soft colors. I hope you play at PPA each week!
