Wow! The PPA designers have provided yet another great template and super creative examples. I’ve got to hurry and get this one done!




PPA 176 – Black Tie Christmas

I waited until the last moment to make this card for the PPA challenge 176. I was intimidated by the daunting template and the incredible cards submitted by the design team. But I am Spanish and Texan, making me determined and stubborn. So here it is!

The based is a beautiful textured slate cardstock bought at a paper distributor. Up close, you can see and feel the pin stripes. The ribbon is leftover from my football mum making days.
