Pallenge #1

I've recently joined a new group through the forum at PaperTrey Ink. There's 15 of us and we're all lovers of PTI! We started the group to mainly challenge one another and to get new ideas and give and get feedback! Our blog is called Papertrey PALs and we have our first challenge posted. You're more than welcome to play along with us!

Our first challenge, is hosted by Ted. He wants us to do a card, project, layout, etc that incorporates PAL in some way. I took the easy way out and did a card!


Unfortunately, I have no stamps that say PAL on them, so I had to improvise! I wound up doing a definition of sorts. The part of "an accomplice" cracks me up! Especially when I think who this is going to! :)


I decided I wanted to play around with some backgrounds and used one of the small stamps from Vintage Labels in Pure Poppy on Pure Poppy cardstock. The red large polka dots come from Polka Dot Basics and are stamped in Pure Poppy on Rustic Cream Cardstock.


Since the outside was so festive, I figured I needed to bring it to the inside and did a strip of Dark Chocolate Satin Dots ribbon and finished it off with a sentiment.



Thanks Ted for a great challenge (and a challenge it was!)! Our next challenge will be posted February 7th, join us!


Supplies: (all PTI unless noted:)
Paper - Dark Chocolate, Pure Poppy, Rustic Cream
Ink - Dark Chocolate Pure Poppy
Stamps - Vintage Label, Polka Dot Basics, unknown alphabet
Other - corner rounder, Dark Chocolate and Pure Poppy Swiss Dots Satin Ribbon, Stampin' Up Real Red marker

Liz, I love this card! I think what I mostly like about it is the "askew" polka-dotted cards behind the focal "Pal" definition card. That gives it a playful feel that goes really well with "accomplice" LOL! And the chocolate and poppy combination is awesome. Thanks for taking the PALLENGE! ;)

Hey Liz great job on the card & challenge! Love the colors you used and how you took the smaller stamps to make your background. Good reminder that I don't need to have those background stamps to make my own!

Like others have said, this is a great color combo and one I don't think I've ever used (so thanks for that inspiration ;) I think it was very creative of you to do a definition for the word Pal, great take on this challenge!
