Paper Pal Arts Sketch Challenge-PPA 189

Oh, the possibilities!  With this week's sketch challenge, Resident Artist Nicole Watt has created a template that will support any type of card - birthday, thank you, sympathy.  I chose to make a Birthday card.  

The bright colors in the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper from the Occasions catalog are perfect.  This card features Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry, just a few of my favorites.  The geometric patterns are so cheerful.

The stack of presents is from a popular Christmas set this year, Wishing You.  I am always looking for ways to use my Stampin' Up supplies in new and different ways.  My favorite texture folder from the Occasions Catalog is the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Either side looks great.  Just a small piece adds so much to this card.  The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is a sneak peek from the Annual Catalog which we received at Leadership this year.  Everyone at Leadership were "So Very Happy" to receive another  brand new stamp set.  A big part of the fun at Stampin' Up events are the freebies.  Leadership was full of delightful surprises.  Stay tuned for more samples using this set.
