Today I got the chance to play with two amazing challenges, Pals Paper Arts Challenge #270 and the Global Design Project #004! This week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge is a Color Challenge with Challenge Team #1! Each week the Pals Paper Arts design team creates fabulous samples and invites their readers to join in, be sure to come and join us using this fun sketch challenge:

For the card above I used all three colors from the Pals Paper Arts Challenge exclusively and I did my best to CASE the Designer, in a rough sense. I typically don’t use 1/16″ layers, but with this card I did just that with my Blackberry Bliss layer behind the Sahara Sand top. I also kept a central focus to this card as well as a Christmas theme. A bit of both challenges together helped me achieve this fun card featuring Festive Trees. I did use my Tree Punch to mask the area I stamped my first center tree in Always Artichoke and then used that mask to stamp my Blackberry Bliss trees. I love how this card turned out, atypical colors for me to combine, but I think it all came together nicely.
