NATURE WALK, THANK YOU KINDLY, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'Hello blog friends! Wow! It is time for another Pals Paper Arts challenge. Today, is a very special one as they are celebrating number 100! Congrats PPA! And I have the honor of being Featured Artist this week! I’m so excited!!!  This week’s PPA challenge is all about making a card using your favorite technique. I’m sure you can guess what mine is??? Sewing and Daubing!!! I also love embossing & punch art! So today’s card features all my favorite techniques.

Your comments mean SO VERY much to me. I would love to hear what you think about today’s card. Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!

NATURE WALK, THANK YOU KINDLY, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and some retired Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper was used for today’s card. “Thanks” can be found in the Thank You Kindly stamp set which I stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

NATURE WALK, THANK YOU KINDLY, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'Nature Walk stamp set which is in the new catalog was used today! Yay! I love this stamp set! I carefully cut it out and then lifted it on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

NATURE WALK, THANK YOU KINDLY, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'Blossom Petal Builder Punch was used for my flowers! I used the littler flower on the punch. I then crumbled each petal and then daubed around the edges. My colors for my flowers are Baja Breeze and Cherry Cobbler. The leaves were punched with Pear Pizzazz card stock and again I crumbled and daubed them.
