PPC-CC #13 & SSSC #69

It's a great Monday not only because a new challenge time but because I have the day off!! Hopefully I can be productive and go pick out a paint color for our laundry room! I also plan to do some mudding today and patch up the 9 million nail holes left behind from the wood paneling. This week Megan over at Picture Perfect Creations has picked some super fun colors. I love how they're all neutral with a loud pop of color. I combined PPC-CC #13 with Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #69. The background uses the new Presto Designer Series Paper from the Summer Mini catalogue. It's all white with images that are pre-embossed. So you can make the images pop like magic with a few sweeps of ink. I sponged on Basic Gray and Green Galore and finished off the card with an embossed Green Galore tree and Liquid Pearls. Hope you all get a chance to play along this week with us over at the PPC-CC blog! Have a great start of the week!

Sandy that Presto Designer paper sounds so neat! I was looking at that sketch too! You rocked it!!! I love the little pearls. Do you like the liquid pearls and how do you get them so perfect, well without a tip? Fanastic job as always and the buttons are awesome.
