Smarty Pants

I am back with another Pals Paper Arts Challenge Entry!  I am just loving the challenge that Pals Paper Arts offers my crafting heart!  I do have to admit that I like the colour challenges a bit better than the sketches, because I feel like I am better able to be creative with the colours.  But I do still like the sketches.  It always helps me open up and use different stamp sets and often colour schemes that I normally wouldn't!  If you haven't played in any challenges before, this is one that is super enjoyable and shouldn't be missed!!

Last challenge (okay not last challenge, but last colour challenge), for the first time I was a Pals Paper Arts Pick!  It was soo exhilerating to see my card in that top 3!  Never happened to me before, so I felt pretty excited about that!!  Yay!  Made me even more motivated to aprticipate and see my card up there again!  Now I know that I can do it!

Anyways, another fun card today.  The colours for the challenge are Baja Breeze, Calypso Coral and So Saffron.  The colours look beautiful together!  And even better is that I never would have put them together!!

I decided on a fairly simple card, but it is using a few things that will be/are retired now!  The crimper, which I am going to miss because it really gives you a nice little bit of texture when you need it.  The stamp set mixed bunch which was in the occasions mini is done now...maybe it will show up in the annual catalogue, which would be awesome becuase I love this stamp set (and the coordinating punch)!  And also the sentiment is from Smarty Pants which will be retiring at the end of May!
