The colors at Pals Paper Arts are very patriotic...Real Red, Midnight Muse and Whisper White. Midnight Muse is now retired but it was one of my favorite colors so I still have a brand new pack of it to use. I also used retired Polka Dot Parade in Real Red for my banner. Another DSP that I was so sad to see go but like the Muse I have a few packs of it left.
I embossed some Midnight Muse with the Arrows TIEF and I layered that on a card base of Real Red. I had originally stamped the silhouette on a smaller oval but to keep in line with the sketch I went to the next size up and stamped the image in Midnight Muse. I then stamped the sentiment in Real Red and created a Whisper White banner across the card, where the sparkly strip in the sketch is. For the 2 flower pieces in the sketch I stamped the boots from the set in Midnight Muse and popped those up with dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by, and make sure you go check out these 2 challenge blogs!
