New-Pals Paper Arts blog challenge!

Because I had to play with this new Pals Paper Arts blog challenge here, I'm posting twice today. One of my favorite blogs for Stampin' Up inspiration is Mary Fish's Stampin' Pretty here and she's one of the design team members of PPA.
I'm gradually warming up to Bermuda Bay and this challenge helped me appreciate the color even more. I chose my Enjoy Every Moment stamp set for this card. I used one of the circles to create my own patterned paper in Bermuda Bay since I don't have any yet. And inking up the "enjoy" stamp with the new In Color markers was awfully easy too. I also used the small flower stamp and White craft ink to put the pattern on the Melon Mambo paper under the ribbon.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment
Papers: Whisper white, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Chocolate chip, Razzleberry lemonade designer papers
Inks: Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay ink pads, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Chocolate chip markers, White craft ink pad
Accessories: Scallop edge punch, Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8 inch circle punch, 1 1/4 inch circle punch, white gel pen, Bermuda bay polka-dot grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' dimensionals

Jennie, I love how you created your own designer paper! What an excellent job using the challenge colors. I hoped you "enjoyed" the first PPA challenge!

I love that you colored 'enjoy' with the markers... easy, but a fabulous statement! Your flower popped in the center of the 'o' is my favorite part -- the details are so important. ;) Thanks for playing at the PPA!
