I was excited about the challenge this week at PPA to create Anything But a Card, but after seeing so many awesome entries, I was stumped as to what I should make. I recently got the Pretties Kit so I decided to get out my jewelry supplies and try my hand at some earrings. They were very simple and easy to put together. For supplies I just used two posts, earring tops, the pretties kit pearls, sparkly beads, and silver beads. I already had the silver beads that you see on the top. To show the earrings off, I used a box from Jolee's Boutique that once housed some other jewelry supplies and added some Bella Bleu paper as well as some thin organza ribbon. Thanks for looking!

Salutations! This week the PPA is hosting a sketch challenge by Margaret Moody and the above is my take on the sketch. I used the "Dreams du Jour" set which has been getting a little dusty and had fun matching up some colors from the new Autumn Meadow paper in the Mini Catalog. I like the rustic look of this paper, and the Taken with Teal color is one I need to pay more attention to! Thanks for looking!
Materials: Paper (Choc. Chip/ More Mustard/Real Rust/Taken with Teal/Very Vanilla/Autumn Meadow), Sizzix #3 flower die, lace edge punch, 2"scallop punch, gold brads, gold stickles, gold cord, Dreams du Jour, & Teeny Tiny Messages.

Greetings! I have been away for a week so it feels good to get back in the stamp room. For this week's challenge, we were supposed to use OLD OLIVE, PUMPKIN PIE, & PERFECT PLUM. Click on the PPA link at left to see all the great inspirations and submissions. For my card, I used my new "Tales from the Crypt" set. I embossed the skeleton and cut it out with an oval cutter, sponged lilac pastel around the edges, then set it on a pumpkin pie mat. Around the edges of the Old olive mat behind it, I simply used the filigree-like stamp that comes with this set to add a spooky border. The rest was basically putting paper on paper. Thanks for Looking!
