A Nice Cuppa for PPA294

I love card challenges! Do you know what I’m talking about? Challenges are oppotunities for stampers to create a card based on parameters suggested by the challenge designer. For instance, this week, Pals Paper Arts # 294 is a challenge provided by Dawn Tidd. It’s a fabulous, simple design:


And here’s my card:

A Nice Cuppa - PPA294

You might notice that my card is not square and it has an additional border around the outside. This is what I meant when I said “suggested” parameters. It’s a starting point and it allows some creative license. Once the card is finished, it can be uploaded to the challenge website, for this one, Pals Paper Arts, but it’s also fun to play along and use the challenges for idea starters for your own personal use. There are lots of challenge websites out there, and I’ve listed a few below:
