Be the Star You Are!

Hi all!

Have you ever played paper challenges? There are so many of them out there. Challenges are a great way to stretch your paper crafting comfort zone. As a member of Mary Fish's Paper Pals, I most often play the Pal's Paper Arts (PPA) challenge. There is a new  challenge posted on Thursdays in the month. There is an exception if there is a 5th Thursday to the month. Ana-hoo, the most recent challenge was a color challenge.

I pulled out the file folders containing each of these colors and didn't have to think too long to find inspiration. Inside my folder of Pink Pirouette, there was a scrap that was embossed with stars. I immediately knew the stamp set that would work with that scrap and also knew I wanted to use the yummy Watermelon Wonder 1" ribbon from the Occasions catalog. This card came together so quickly I surprised myself!

I will be sending this to a friend I've come to know through work. Alyx is a tech assistant for my human resources software and has been a life saver for me. She was recently promoted into a new role and while I'm sad for me, I'm happy for her. I hope she likes the card! Do you? If so, please leave a comment. I love hearing from you.

Challenge yourself this week! Google 'challenge sketches' and have some fun!

Happy stamping!
