Playing with Pals Paper Arts!


I decided to play along with the Pals Paper Arts Challenge this morning! I've had this "yo-yo" fabric circle thingy sitting on my desk since I got back from Leadership in January. - That's where I first saw it, and learned how to make it. So when I saw this sketch, I figured I could finally put the yo-yo to good use.

And here it is...


The fabric was part of a gift I got from Leadership, so I've been using it for little random things, and I love how it has the Designer Paper to match! The yo-yo is made by cutting a circle (easy with the Big Shot!), and then making stitches around the edge and cinching it up into a little puffy circle, or yo-yo! Fun!


Then I just layered it on a Marina Mist circle and a Rose Red Scallop circle, and of course, added a little linen thread to a button center - wahlah!!

One of my favorite things on the card is the embossed background. I like it because I had already put down the flowered piece of Designer Paper, and I realized that the Marina half needed a little something. So when I decided on the lattice folder texture, I figured why not do the whole card front? And I love how the texture looks over the Designer Paper too! Double cool!

And the saying, one of my new favorites, is from the new Bold Blossom set.


Thanks for stopping by,


Julie

Ooooh, this is BEAUTIFUL!! I really need to try that technique to use embossing on images instead of plain old cardstock, lol! :) Love the matching DSP and fabric!
