Hope you are having a great day. This morning I was checking a few of my favorite blogs while having coffee and when I saw the sketch for the Pals Paper Artist 221 Challenge, I knew I needed to participate.   Over the past few weeks I have been putting together different holiday cards using the Wonderous Wreath stamp set from the 2014 Holiday Catalog and I knew there was a card that looked just like the sketch Nicole Watt designed.  When I see the four squares I think of a window and how perfect it would be with a wreath on it.  Below is the sketch, if you click on it, you will be directed to the Paper Pals Artist blog to see the designs by their team and other crafters.untitled

Here is the card I created.  The card base is Whisper White and for a mat I used a piece of Cherry Cobbler stamped with the Hardwood background stamp in black. For the ‘window’ I used a square piece of Whisper White and used a square punch to punch out the four squares, using a sponge dauber went over the white with a little black for texture.  Wreath is from the Wonderous Wreath stamp set (3 step stamping) which is a photopolymer set for easy line up.  There is a matching framelit set which includes the word Noel – which is cut from Gold foil paper.  Greeting is on Basic Black and heat embossed with gold powder.
