Pal Paper Arts 165

I am very fortunate to have been Linda's choice last week as one of the Pal Paper Artists picks for this card...thank you Linda!  I have to admit, I was a bit intimidated by this weeks' sketch, but given that I need a birthday card for one of my sisters, I went at it!

I had fun with this one;  I am not comfortable mixing DSP but I am okay with how this came out!
  • A neglected set, Amazing Family, is the focal point.  On my shelf and probably never used!
  • I went with the colors of the DSP, choosing Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizazz and Wisteria wonder for the ink colors.
  • I also chose the more modern, graphical pieces from the DSP set.  Hard to choose and love these colors!
So I have three sisters in all, and the other two have birthdays coming up in the next few months so I think they will all be getting the same card!  But, I am going to change up the DSP and colors.  Guess what I am doing the rest of today??  I will post them so you can see how they come out!

Have a great remainder of the weekend!

  1. Beautiful, Lauri! I love the pearls on the side panel piece. Your snipping on "sister" was very clever. Thanks for playing with the Pals at Pals Paper Arts!

    1. Thanks, Ann! I think of you whenever I use pearls!!! ; )

  2. Your fussy cutting is just wonderful! I'm glad that you got over your fear of mixing DSP - it's a beautiful take on this week's PPA sketch. Thanks for playing!

  3. Such an amazing card. Very pretty. Thanks for playing at PPA.

  4. Lauri, I have struggled with how to use this stamp set, but I LOVE what you've done with it here. Such a beautiful card! Thanks for playing along with The Pals Paper Arts this week!


Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
