Pals Paper Arts ~ A Sketch

The Pretty Pals have a great sketch going on this week!  I looked at it and decided I would try to create a more "whimsical" card!  I don't usually make many of those, so I decided to really try something new. 

This stamp set is a great Sale-A-Bration set called "Funky Four".  It is from the main Catalogue.  I just received the Funky Four set FREE! I love Sale-A-Bration!! 
How I made my card:

  • I inked up the fun little tree stamp with my markers and huffed it!! 
  • I used my Bitty Punch Pack to make a small blossom to put on the tree with a pearl of course! 
  • The sentiment comes from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set!! 
  • My paper is a mixture of Jolly Holiday and Sunny Garden Designer Paper! 
  • I used the crimper to create some grass and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch to add a punch of colour under my grass. 
  • To focus in on the tree, I used my Mats Pack and Paper Piercer and did some small paper piercing around the edges of my main panel.
  • The tree top is stamped twice, cut out and popped up for some dimension

Hope you get the chance to play along with the Pals Paper Arts this week!!  Only 13 days left of Sale-A-Bration!
