A Colorful Thank You with PPA275

I have never taken an art class. I have never said that I was artistic. With that being said, I do try to tap into some creativity using card challenges! Pals Paper Arts has a color challenge using the colors Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, and Tangelo Twist! I LOVE these bright, cheerful, and even playful colors! I needed a Thank You card so this is what I came up with implementing these colors.


It’s very simple yet this was my second card. Did I get it perfect? NOPE! My first card, I stamped the sentiment in the middle then I decided to stamp the bottom as you see it here. Then my sentiment was too low. My second attempt, I decided to do the playful border on the top and bottom. I didn’t get the top border exactly perfect. Then I stamped the sentiment last. I went with it! LOL! Is it a masterpiece? No. What counts is that I am able to participate in this color challenge! 🙂

Here is the Pals Paper Arts color challenge . . .


FYI: I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the sentiment Thank You to have the three colors. After I colored the letters, I then “huffed” upon the letters to allow the ink to become moist again before stamping.

Here are the supplies that I used to make my card . . .
