Pals Paper Arts

It’s been a busy month, but I’m finally back and playing the Pals Paper Arts Challenge today!  The Color Combination was so fun and unique that I felt compelled to give this week’s challenge a try.

My friend and co-worker here at my high school had a very close call with her daughter last week.  Her little 7-year-old nearly drowned at a local waterpark.  The accident has made for a tense week for her family.  Her daughter looks like she’ll make a full recovery, thank goodness.  This card went to her.

The stamp set used is one of my favorites, “Awesomely Artistic.”  I also used the “Timeless Textures” to create some of the background texture on the card.  I cut the flower bunch out by hand, and used the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush to add some sparkle, although it’s difficult to see here.  The sentiment is from the “Sassy Salutations” set, and punched using the Decorative Label Punch.  The background paper, adhered over the Blushing Bride card base, was created using a sponge and Night of Navy ink on one of the embossing papers from the Project Life Sale-A-Bration products.  I was completely out of navy cardstock, so had to improvise!
