Here we have a card for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge PPA55. This is a color challenge, namely turquoise, melon and daffodil. As it happens, I just finished a birthday card for a friend's birthday and I think my color combination is very close to the color challenge, so I am submitting this card.

The stamp set is a retired Stampin' Up set called "Groovy" that I found on Ebay. The friend is turning 60, so I think he will appreciate the sentiment, "Hippie Birthday!"

The card style is a TRI Shutter Card . I saw a tutorial at The Craftiblog
that was very well done. This tutorial enable me to be successful at the TRI Shutter design. I really enjoyed having so many sections to decorate because this stamp set has nine images from which to choose.

Thank you PPA for all these fun challenges. I have some spare time between semesters so I am enjoying being able to participate.

Isn't it time we got together? PPA 54

Hello. Here we have my second attempt at a Pals Paper Arts challenge.

This is PPA54-A Masculine KISS.

As I am a big Alice in Wonderland fan, TJ Designs "Mad Hatter's Tea Party" is one of my favorite stamp sets.

The White Rabbit is stamped with with Stampin' Up's Close to Cocoa on Stampin' Up's Naturals Ivory card stock. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, also stamped in Close to Cocoa.

The stripes are from Mambi Color Basics. The sentiment was punched with Stampin' Up's Designer Label, and the edges sponged with Close to Cocoa. Both the sentiment and the White Rabbit are attached to the card with dimensionals.
