PPA293 Grateful BunchToday I have a fun new card to share with you for the current Pals Paper Arts Challenge #293 – a softer side of spring. This week’s challenge is a fun Color Challenge with our host – Michelle Gleeson! Each week the Pals Paper Arts Design Teams create fabulous samples and invites their readers to join in, be sure to come and join us using this fun color challenge.

PPA-293-Mar24For today’s card I wanted to use these soft colors to make a serene card, and this trio really were perfect to do just that. I decided to use the Grateful Bunch Stamp Set and coordinating punch – Blossom Bunch Punch from the Occasions Catalog. I wanted to use these colors in some designer series paper as accents so I rummaged through my stash and decided on this soft stripe background paper from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper and a matting layer for my main image from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Pad.

I also used some of the Mint Macaron It’s My Party DSP pieces to act as leaves behind my flowers. I love how easily these flowers layered when using the Blossom Bunch Punch! Now these darling flowers look great layered, but they were missing a final touch. Queue the Love Blossoms Embellishments Kit the Blushing Bride Enamel Glitter Dots were the perfect finish I was looking for!
