This week’s Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA170) combines 3 modern colors for fall (or any time of year).   Check out what the rest of the PPA Resident

  • To soften the bold color combination, I used lots of white card stock.

  • Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Write Markers allowed me to color directly to the stamp rubber.  Each gift  (Wishing You stamp set from the Holiday Catalog) received a different color.
  • I used this card from my Stampin’ Pretty “archives” as my inspiration.
  • A single Pearl Basic Jewel dots the middle gift and a trio of pearls accents the left side.
