Bling Bling for PPA 273


How about a little sparkle and shine for this weeks Pals Paper Arts challenge?  Here is the banner that inspired my design:
I saw the square in the middle and went right for this square-shaped sentiment in my newly acquired "Six Sayings" host set.
Six Sayings Wood-Mount Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! 
I also have a new adhesive for vellum (thank you Pals for the conversation that made me aware of this awesome product!)  It is a double sided tape, but doesn't show through the vellum.  Hooray!  I can now use the pretty vellum papers that I have been avoiding for so long.

The base card and the ink are Pacific Point, a cool icy blue that I thought this card needed.  I put the snowflake vellum over Whisper White.  Silver Foil, silver Glimmer Paper, and rhinestones give this card all the sparkle and shine of a frozen winter scene.  We used to call them silver frosts up in the northwest.


Thanks for stopping by today.  Visit palspaperarts.com to see the rest of this week's entries.  Have a blessed day!

  1. Karen, This is just gorgeous! I love how you've paired this sentiment with the snowflakes to perfectly match this sketch - if I didn't know better, I'd think the sketch was created from your card. It's wonderful. Thank you so much for playing along with this week's Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.

  3. I LOVE snowflakes -- it's no secret! This is a wonderful design! I think you've highlighted a fantastic sentiment for all of our Jewish friends who may be looking for something appropriate for Hanukkah. Thanks for playing along with Pals Paper Arts this week!
