Another Double Challenge


I had been itching to play Arielle’s ColourQ#19 for a couple days!  When the Pals Paper Arts Sketch #29 came up, I decided to combine them:

cqc19 PPA29

Aren’t those colors FUN?   However, the idea in my head did not want to want to translate on to paper.  I finally came up with this:



This uses images and sentiments from Always and one of my favorites (that I have neglected), Best Wishes & More.  I am still learning how to do that ruffled ribbon thing!  Obviously I need some practice!  Thanks for visiting today!

  • Stamps:  Always, Best Wishes & More
  • Paper:  Blush Blossom, WW, Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip
  • Ink:  Craft White, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Blush Blossom
  • Acc:  Wide Stitched Ribbon, 1 3/4” Circle Punch, 1/2” Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, 1/8” Circle Punch, Sweet Pea Felt Flowers, Sticky Strip, Jumbo Brad
