Penned & Painted for PPA 315

PPA-315-Aug25Our delightful color challenge this week was chosen by design team member Michelle Gleeson.  And since I had not yet inked up Penned & Painted stamp set, it was the perfect opportunity to do so. Michelle has a clean and uncluttered style with enough detail to keep her cards interesting and pretty.  Won’t you come by and take a look at her inspiration as well as those from our design team?  Better yet, come play with us this week!!

    Katy I love the detail on your sentiment banner. Unique and adds such whimsy to the card. Penned & Painted is one of my favorite stamp sets from the annual catalog. You brought out the best in this color palette.
