A Smiling Heart – GDP #053 & PPA #318


ppa-318-sep15  colour-challenge

It’s a lot of fun combining challenges, especially when you have a fun sketch and a super color combination to work with.  The Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge and the Global Design Project’s color challenge worked so well together on this card.  I hope you agree….


  • The star of this card is the POP of color from the Watermelon Wonder In Color Doilie (#141674). 
  • The Layering Circles Framelits (#141705) helped create the medallion along with an image from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set (#142196) and the Paisleys Framelits (#141849).  These are available as a bundle (#143515) for a 10% savings.
  • The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set (#140712).


  • It’s so easy to add some interest to the inside of a card, especially a blank note, with a bit of DSP.


I hope this card made you smile a bit.

Thanks for looking….
