A new challenge and an old favorite

A new challenge and an old favorite published on No Comments on A new challenge and an old favorite

I was looking for inspiration for a thank you card today and I found it…times two!!  First of all, I found a brand spankin’ new challenge from Stampin’ Celebration!  You’ll recognize some of the names and faces, and you’ll be inspired by the fun colors.  Just look at this picture:

Conveniently enough, there is a compatible challenge over at Pals Paper Arts (PPA41).  For some reason I can’t link the picture so go take a look!  I used the colors from Stampin’ Celebration and the cool birds from the Pals to get my card moving along.  After I decided on the birds from Of the Earth, I played around with variations of using those squares.  As I started putting the card together, I realized that I had settled on a version of the Pals sketch from a few weeks ago (PPA38).  Well, a good sketch is one you can come back to over and over!!  I used the Melon Mambo DSP from the level 3 hostess set Lovely Flowers.  Can I tell you how happy I am that Melon Mambo is staying on as a new core color??!!  I’m not much of a pink girl but this pink really works for me! 

I’m using this as a thank you card for a friend.  I hope she like the happy colors, too!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

I FINALLY got some time to blog surf and I’m catching up on all of your posts that I’ve missed. This is a cute card and I love the way you used the bright colors and the sketch. I like the Bold Brights but tend not to use them because I can’t ever get the balance of them just right on y card. You did a great job!
