An Amazing Pals Paper Arts Challenge

I am very amazed at myself… no pun intended… LoL.  I had a vision for this card, but then it turned out completely different then my vision.  That happens to me a lot when I participate in the Pals Paper Arts 163 – A Rich and Regal Color Combination.  I think that’s why I enjoy the sketches more, but I need to get out of my comfort zone and participate in the color challenges too.

As I’ve mentioned it many times before I not a very crafty person, but Stampin’ Up! sure does make it look like I am.  That’s why I participate in many card sketch challenges.  However, once in a while I have a brain cell with enough originality that I can’t help myself.

I had planned on putting little blossoms all around the oval cut window, but obviously I changed my mind.  So now I have about 20 of these cute little blossoms that I’ll be using on a different card.


If you think you’re not crafty (like me), won’t you please join me and my Circle of Pals today.
