The most recent Pals Paper Arts challenge is a color challenge that involves using Real Red, Whisper White, and Night of Navy. While I am not sure what specifically prompted their choice, there are so many occasions that can incorporate these color selections…Independence Day, the upcoming Olympic Games (LOVE the Olympics), and even the Queen’s Jubilee. And frankly this color combination is simply crisp and sharp. Take a look at what I have done with this:
Did you notice that I used the star stamp in the coordinating ink shades on both the Real Red and Night of Navy panels? The star is from the Every Little Bit set (120558 clear mount/ 117096 wood mount) and I have to say that if I were to be getting started and want to invest in one and only one set, this would likely be it. While the set does not include any sentiments, it has am image for just about every event you can imagine.
I am very impressed with the range of cards that others made for this challenge so if you did not come over from the Pals Paper Arts site, be sure to take a look.
Whatever occasion you chose to celebrate with red, white , and blue, enjoy!
PS: Did you happen to catch the Jubilee concert for Queen Elizabeth? When I selected the pinwheel stamp from the Happy You hostess set (122802 clear mount/ 122800 wood mount), I had the Fourth of July in mind. However, as soon as I finished assembling my card, I remembered Prince Charles asking the concert goers to give three cheers for the Queen and he three times said “hip hip” and the audience replied “hooray”…perhaps I should send this card “across the pond” with some jubilee greetings!
