OTWC #53

Hi everyone!  Wow, what a Friday the 13th! So glad that Blogger is up and running again.....but then aren't we all?  So here is the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge for this week.  Just look at the colors this week!  I was happy to work with something that I could use my new pattern paper!  It's just so dreamy!



I took a couple of things from the inspiration photo besides the COLOR.  I used my Scattered Showers umbrella, paper pieced it and added the pearls.


When I saw the POSTCARD image, I knew I wanted to finally use my Postmarks set from PTI.  Do you spot any other of the Postmarks stamps here?  I used the word POSTCARD, the wavy lines, and Par Avion stamps and just randomly stamped them in Haystack Palette ink.  It blended in so well to this pattern paper! 


The next photo shows the tiny tag which was stamped in BB: Newsprint and then the tiny images (FOR YOU and butterfly image) from Postmarks. 


Our sponsor this week is Through The Craft Room Door!!  One lucky winner will receive a digital subscription!  We'd love to see what you make with this dreamy color palette and remember if you use Wilson Designs stamps, you get another chance at the prize!

My good blog friend, Suzanne whom I got to meet this spring, is hosting this week's challenge over at the Papertrey Paper Dolls blog.  Her challenge:  pattern paper!  Not just for one thing.......the WHOLE card except for the base!  Well, on my card I succeeded until I added the tiny tag but then I stamped my own  text, does that count as pattern paper??  LOL  Thanks Suzanne for such a great challenge....Gave me a chance to use my new papers!!!  We are heading out to our nephew's graduation after I get off work tomorrow for the weekend.  So everyone---HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
