Color Throwdown 179 and Pals Paper Arts 129

Saturday, February 18, 2012

This has been one of those weeks where I have had absolutely no time to stamp!  I actually have not set foot in my stamp room to get crafty since last Sunday!  Eek!  Today I was determined to remedy that, so I checked out some of my favorite challenges and sat down at my desk.

I recently learned that friend of mine got engaged to be married so I wanted to make a card for her.

I used the wonderful layout from Pals Paper Arts designed by Margaret Moody.  It's a great sketch that can be dressed up or down.  I decided to keep mine pretty clean to show off the lovely lady holding the champagne.  The colors come from Color Throwdown.

I think taking a week off has made my card-making skills rusty because now that I've had a chance to really look at this card I wish I had dressed it up a bit.  Now that I've got my feet wet again, I'll be heading back in my stamp room to get my craft on!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love your dimensional card! I'm not sure I have the patience to cut out a detailed image. ;-) Thanks for visiting my blog post.... the stamp I used is an old Hero Arts sentiment.

I think it's adorable and your friend will too! The colors and sketch look great together.
