Sketch Challenge from Pals Paper Arts

I'm a bit of a rebel today! I took the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge, using all Stampin' Up! products, and turned it on it's side. I wasn't trying to be a rebel. I was actually just having a hard time with the sketch at it's given position. Since I'm one of the "pals" I think they won't be too hard on me. :)

My PPA2 Sketch Challenge card recipe:

*The card base is Pretty in Pink.

* The next layer is a 5.25x4 piece of Garden Green card stock decoratively edged with the Scalloped Edge Punch, and dotted scallops with a white pen.

Tea Party Designer Series Paper tops off the Garden Green card stock with a scalloped border as well.

* A 2.75x3.75 Garden Green card stock will anchor the sentiment piece.

* The sentiment, from
Sincere Salutations, was inked in Garden Green card stock and stamped on Whisper White (2.5x3.5).

* A coordinating design of Tea Party DSP (2.25x2) was attached above the sentiment.

* Using the
Scallop Circle Punch and several circle punches, I created a little floral embellishment.

* The center of the scallop circle is a flower & leaf from the
Season of Friendship stamp set inked in Garden Green and Pretty in Pink. The center of the flower is a Pretty in Pink brad.

* Last but not least, a little satin pink ribbon from my stash tied off this creation with a little bow.

I hope you play along with the challenge! It's always fun to see what others create from a sketch.

Enjoy your day and thank you for stopping by!
