Hi Stampers. You’ve seen me post every other week as a member of the Team 1 Pals Paper Arts design team, well this week I’ve decided to play along with Team 2.  They have a color challenge this week to use: Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss.  This is my card –

Stampin' Up! Pals Paper Arts color challenge PPA247I started out using the My Digital Studio software.  I love that program, I am so sad they are discontinuing it!  It’s been a great help in making custom sayings and a quick way to use a stamp set I haven’t ordered yet and don’t have time to wait for delivery on.  But, I digress  –  onto my card….

The saying was printed from my computer onto Whisper White card stock.  I then cut that layer to 5.25″ x 4″ and layered it onto a Perfect Plum card base, 5.5″ x 8.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next I cut a strip of Blackberry Bliss card stock 1.25″ x 5.25″ and  layer of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper .75″ x 5.25″ and added them to the top of the card.  I finished it off by using a scrap of Elegant Eggplant card stock and the Elegant Butterfly punch to punch a butterfly.  I then used a scrap of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper using the Bitty Butterfly punch to punch a smaller butterfly and attached it to the first butterfly with a glue dot, the the large butterfly to the card with a dimensional.

This will soon go in the mail to a recent hostess.  Would you like one of these cards from me to?
