PPA 209



I am on a red streak!  I've made five red cards in a row and it's not a color I use a lot of.  I started out making one for my niece who loves red, and I just kept going.  Do you associate colors with people?  I tend to think of a certain color when I think of the person. 

Here are my cards for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge 209.  I like this sketch.  I have trouble doing things off center or askew, so this forced me into it!  I actually made the one using On Film framelits first. Then I thought it was too far from the sketch so I made another card very similar to the first.  I was coloring too fast and make the frosting red instead of Coastal but it didn't look too bad so I went with it.

I love these colors together and the dsp is one of my favorites stacks.  Unfortunately it is retired. I colored the white part of the cake with a Wink of Stella pen (white) and then made the candles sparkly with the clear.  You can't really see it in the picture though. 

Thank you for leaving me comments to read!
