Pals Paper Arts Challenge

Today I decided to make another challenge card, but this time for the Pal's Paper Arts blog. The girls and boys on the design team over there are amazing. I also follow a couple of them on their blogs too. Mary Fish, has to be one of my all time favourite designer. Go and have a look at her blog Stampin Pretty, not only is she very talented but also she's a regular blogger, Hooray!!!

Ok, so the challenge today for Pals Paper Arts is to use a sketch, designed by Margaret Moody:

Isn't it a great sketch. Very easy and you can't help but feel your creative juices working. So this is the card I came up with...


I made this card for my friend, who is expecting her second baby in a weeks time. We held a little baby shower for her and I wanted to make a baby shower card, without being too boyish or girly. She and I are both convinced it's a boy... but you can't ever be too sure!!!

Because that card came together so quickly and the sketch was so user friendly, I decide to make another quick card, but this time only using one colour... there's nothing like a double challenge to get the blood pumping.

I think I could get very addicted to this design. Oh and doesn't the Calypso Coral really pop!!!

Hugs and Merry Christmas
