A wish...
A sketchy technique (for me!)...

Happy for Pals Paper Arts...

I was on a washi kick when I was making cards this week.  It’s a sketch challenge over at Pals Paper Arts so I am playing along.  I am thinking of taking a break from this challenge.  So don't be surprised if you don't see me participate in PPA for a while.  Who knows, I may change my mind next week but for now I am not planning on it.

I hadn’t used any of the SU! stacked with love washi so I decided to incorporate it into the card.  I like washi for its ease of use.  It can provide a great background to a card or a great trim.  The washi doesn't show very well in this picture and I really couldn't find a good angle - sorry about that!

I placed a few pieces on black to set the stage for my sentiments.  I die cut happy 4 times in black and one in brushed gold to give some dimension.  After I added happy to the card, I couldn’t figure out how to add either the rest of the sentiment or a sentiment, period.  That is when I decided I would add the “happy anniversary” to a separate piece of CS and pop it up on the card.

I found some embellies in my stash and decided they would look great on the card.  This isn’t the most complicated card to make, but I like the cleanness of it when all is said and done.

Thanks for stopping by today!  It’s a new challenge at The Friday Mashup tomorrow so be sure to pop by to see what I came up with!

Speaking of challenges – scooch (spelling?) on over to the Retro Rubber blog (brads, brads, brads) to link up your project that you just made (I know you have it handy!).

And great news - I received a shout out at Retro Sketches for THIS card, which was also entered in a PPA challenge a couple of weeks ago.  Thank you to the ladies at Retro Sketches!!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! brushed gold and basic black.  Stamps:  SU! express yourself.  Other:  PTI wet paints die.  Embellies.  SU! stacked with love washi.
