It's Thursday and another Pals Paper Arts Challenge. A wonderful sketch from our very own Nicole Watt will give you plenty of inspiration, no doubt….
… but I have to admit that this gave me quite a challenge. My first thought was I needed my sentiment to be large and bold for the center layer. As you can see, that didn't happen.
It didn't because I laid my eyes on the new Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper. That was it…. lots of arrows, straight edges and points. I'm usually not one for a lot of embellishments, but just couldn't resist the beautiful wooden arrow from the Essential Wooden Elements set in the current Occasions Catalog.
There's lots of pattern repetition (an element of good design) in my card and not only was the bold sketch my inspiration, but the Retro Fresh DSP made an impact on my final choice. Love the colors!
Nicole's sketch did what it was supposed to… it challenged me. So, use this sketch to come up with something wonderful to link up with us. Take a look at some of your DSP, stamp sets, embellishments, or all three, and see what will inspire you!
