A Little Bit Country...........PPA6



Since I am headed to a Toby Keith concert tonight in Saratoga I was feeling a little bit country. So when I began this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge to use Crushed Curry, Ruby Red and Brocade Blue I kept that in mind. My stamping friend Trina had given me some images she had colored with aquapainters from a hostess set she earned last year. I snipped a flower pot from a larger scene and mounted it on a small piece of The Write Stuff Designer Specialty Paper. A thank you from the Oval All set sends the message. Crushed Curry ribbon looks terrific against the Brocade Blue background. A bit of silver, a ruby button and the card is good to go. I think I will be sending it to my cousin Cindy who got us great seats for tonight's show!

The Day After Report: Great show, 4th row seats, danced for 2 hours straight, going to sleep early tonight! "I ain't as good as I once was, but I'm as good once, as I ever was!" - Toby Keith

Oh wow! You really rocked this color challenge! I had a tough time with it!

I LOVE your coloring on that flower pot...you are so good at watercoloring!

Very pretty! I don't usually like country, but I do like Toby Keith. I am a bit jealous. I will try to keep it in control! ;)
