Paper players #31 AND Paper Pals Art #77 AND Papertrey Ink's January, 2011 Blog Hop


My card is for three challenges this week.

The first challenge is based on Paper Players #31
sketch designed by Ann Schach.
I believe it fits the criteria with a slight deviation from the original. The sketch provided great inspiration!


The second challenge is for Pals Paper Arts #77 sketch challenge designed by Margaret Moody.
Mine is a very loose interpretation of her design. I believe the 5 elements are there just a smidge different, but it was what I needed to get me scrappin'!
Win or lose it was fun making this card, don't ya just love the little snail!

The third is for Papertrey Ink's January 2011, Blog Hop to use an "oldie but goodie" stamp set. This set is one that I have had for a while and only used once previously.

Supplies:
CS Paper: Stampin' Up's Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake
Floral Paper: K&C Co. Designer Mat Pad (from my long ago stash)
Ribbon, Stampin' Up's Pear Pizzazz seam binding
Stamp, Papertrey Ink-Flutterby Friend
Light Green Rhinestones from Michael's Craft Store
