Tweet Trio PPA11

Pals Paper Arts is hosting a Color Challenge: Perfect Plum, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie. First thought? Halloween. Second thought? My friend, Carrie. There's just something about this rich (unconventional) color combo that reminds me of my dear friend, and so I decided to create a little set of thank you cards just for her. (A Christmas present, perhaps.)

I love 4 x4 cards. They are a perfect medium size... not too big for including with a gift, not too small to pop in the mailbox. The Birds and Blooms Sizzlits are some of my favorites... combined with the branch from Eastern Blooms, they are perfection. I stamped the branch using VersaMark Ink and embossed with clear powder - the subtle texture and sheen is divine. My Corner Rounder and Vintage Brads are everyday essentials that really give this card extra 'wow'.

What do these colors make you think of? Someone dear to your heart? A place you've visited? Your favorite Halloween costume from childhood? Grab your supplies and play along with Pals Paper Arts - I can't wait to see what you create!
