PPA7 Sketch Challenge


This is my first "challenge" card based on a sketch from Margaret Moody. Using one of my favorite new stamps Little Boo. I stamped him in perfect plum, pumpkin pie and old olive then punched each image out with a circle punch. I then punched a larger circle in coordinating card stock and mounted the stamped image on it. These were then mounted with Stampin' dimensionals on black card stock punched with the scallop circle punch. The card base is black with layered pumpkin pie and old olive paper from the DSP Cast-A-Spell. The striped paper from Cast-A-spell was used for the top. I finished the card with "of course" b/w gingham ribbon and a pumpkin pie button. The sentiment, from Teeny Tiny Wishes, was stamped on pumpkin pie card stock and layered with black.

  1. What a great card, Tara! Love your colors, your papers, and your stamps! I love how you stamped Little Boo in different colors! And, I absolutely love the b/w gingham ribbon! It really "pops" against the pumpkin pie and in contrast to all of your other colors! The button is a great touch, too. I'm so glad you participated in the sketch challenge at PPA! Thanks so much for the "shout out", too!

  3. I think I love Little Boo, now that I've seen him on your card. You really make him look better than the IBC does with your color combination and accessories.
