Pals Paper Arts #74

This is the last PPA challenge of the year. Please play along with a great sketch from Margaret Moody. It saddens me that I created a sympathy card for this challenge. My neighbor down the street passed away Monday night. I feel for his family as this time of year is so festive. I choose one of my favorite stamps sets Lovely as a Tree. This is a great stamp set for any masculine card, and does double duty for this masculine sympathy card.

Stamp Sets: Lovely as a Tree (WM-115026), Teeny Tiny Wishes (WM-115370)

Cardstock: Crumb Cake (120953), Chocolate Chip (102128), & Woodland Walk DSP (117389)

Ink: Chocolate Chip (100908)
Cool Tools: Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (113439), Square Lattice Dots Embossing Folder (119976), Modern Label (119849), Word Window (119857), & Corner Rounder (119871)

Extra’s: Snail (104332) & Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Oh, yes! The texture and "bark" are the perfect environment for the tree image. Hugs, M
