PPA224 Happy Hour!

It’s time for another fabulous sketch by Margaret Moody!  This week’s Pals Paper Arts Challenge features a fun and easy sketch with lots of character!  The sketch made me feel happy and I grabbed the Happy Hour stamp set for this card. PPA224-CheersIn case you haven’t noticed, I can’t get enough of the 2014-2016 In Colors!  Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow were my picks for this card.  The horizontal panels were stamped with the border stamp included in the Summer Silhouette stamp set, and I didn’t notice that the print on the wine glasses stamp, from Happy Hour, was the same pattern.  That worked out well!  And since I had a great thing going, I embossed the background panel with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder. The Gold Foil paper, the gold sequins from the 2013-2015 In Color Sequin Assortment, along with gold embossed “Cheers”  gives the card a classy look with all the rich colors. PPA224-Happy-HourTwo little Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the glasses is the perfect sparkling finishing touch for this very clean and simple card. TIP FOR CASE-ing THIS CARD:   It is easiest to stamp the border design and then trim it rather than trying to position it on the strip of paper.

    This is a beautiful card my friend! I love the gold with the Blackberry Bliss! Did you put a larger sheet of gold foil behind the mosaic patterned white piece? And did you then make a shorter layer of gold and another piece of white over that? It almost looks like you have a piece of vellum on the Hello Honey mosaic. And those mosaics are SO perfectly straight! I don’t think I could achieve that with my old eyeballs. 🙂 Love it!
