Need a quick birthday card?  Scallops (Striped Scallop Thinlits Die) layered over blocks of bright color are a simple solution.  It reminds me of a birthday cake!  What do you think?pals paper arts color challenge ppa267

My bold color palette is from this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA267).  See what the rest of the PPA Resident Artists have created with these colors and play along here.


  • Love it!  Attaching the scallop die cut to my colorful blocks of card stock was a snap with the Stampin’ Up! Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Learn more about the glue pen in this Stampin’ Up! Video.
