February 21, 2011: PPA81 for the Birthday Boy

Pin It Now!
I know I'm on the tail end of the contest, but I needed a quick birthday card for a young man. Jeff has three brothers, and Josh is like a fourth. I really wanted to make him something special.

When I saw the sketch this week for Pals Paper Arts, I thought it would be perfect for Extreme Dirt Bike, which I got for FREEEEEE for Sale-a-Bration! I love getting things for free...especially stamp sets. :) I thought this one would be good to have on hand as my brother is an excellent extreme rider and we are both big Metal Mulisha fans. Yep - I'm a Metal Maiden.

A while back my upline did a card using Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point - two colors I would have NEVER been gutsy enough to combine on my own, but loved together. She had also added a light blue - Marina Mist or Baja Breeze, but I couldn't remember which. I chose Baja Breeze, and I really like the effect with the Whisper White. The ink is Baja Breeze for both the focal image and the sentiment, which is from Word Play. I really love Baja Breeze - it's got just enough green that it looks amazing with my favorite purples and pinks.

Well, wish me luck. I enter a fair number of contests, but I haven't won any yet!
