Warm Winter Wishes – PPA #277 & #GDP013

Wow…the last day of November already!  I guess we can say that the Holiday Season is in full swing.  I haven’t started my decorating or shopping but I am full steam ahead on the crafting.

I was a little late in creating my card for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge this week but as luck would have it, the new Global Design Project color challenge came out today and the colors are exactly what I used for the Pals sketch.  So I guess you can say, I hit a 2 for 1 sale!  Here are both challenges.


GDP013 Colour Challenge

When I saw this sketch, I immediately thought of the sled in the Winter Wishes stamp set.

In order to fit the sentiment into the sketch, I had to separate the words on the stamp and then stack them on my clear block.  I was a little worried about cutting apart the stamp but this does give it a little more versatility.  I was able to then put them back side by side for the front of the envelope…another 2 for 1!

The inside sentiment is from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set.

I am really beginning to get hooked on these challenges.  However, the real challenge for me is to organize my time so that I can enter them in time.  I am working on that!

Thanks for looking in on my project today and please stop back again soon.

Have a wonderful day,
