PPA 52-Sketch Challenge

Today, I have another card for you inspired by this week's sketch challenge at Pal's Paper Arts.  Sketches are a great way to get inspiration for a design of your own.  They provide a great starting point for a card.  After I get my sketch, I like to select my color scheme, often inspired by one of our designer series paper lines.  Finally, I select the stamp set that I would like to work with.  This is a great way to give yourself guidelines when you just can't think of what you want to do.  You can also select a theme as well to help narrow all the choices that you need to make when designing a card.  Hope these tips help!

Here are the ingredients for this card:

Stamps: Just Believe
Paper: Pacific Point, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Blueberry Crisp DSP
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pacific Point
Accessories: 5/8" Basic Black Grosgrain, Staple


  1. Wow, love your card! Great color combo and I like your tips on deciding a direction to go. Have a great day!

  2. Hi Amy!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my Matter of Moments card. I love this set and agree, you must get it ;)

    I love the card you've done here! I haven't used Pacific Point yet, but this has inspired me to pull it out. I have it...I need to use it right?

    Can't wait to see what else you come up with...TFS!

  3. Love how you used the flowers in the background - and the blue stands out perfectly! Thanks for joining us at PPA!
